Esquire Brings Cover Girl to Barnes & Noble Stores, Virtually

Esquire has crowned fashion model Brooklyn Decker as the sexiest woman alive. In an effort to promote the magazine (which, like the rest of the print world, is aching to compete with the increasingly digital media world), Esquire is taking Decker on a whirlwind tour of Barnes & Noble stores across the country -- over 700 in total. How is the model going to cover so much ground before the next...

Barnes & Noble's Colorful NOOK Kids App Comes to iPad

Already available on Barnes & Noble's NOOKcolor e-reader, the 'NOOK Kids' app is now available on the iPad. According to TUAW, the app features hundreds of colorful, interactive books, which it will read aloud to your kids, and also easily syncs with your NOOKcolor device. The free app, which also works on the iPhone, comes with two initial downloads -- Richard Scarry's 'Colors,' and Rudyard...

NOOKcolor Shines With Magazines, Disappoints With Books

The NOOKcolor is the first of its kind: a serious, full-color e-reading device. Sure, the iPad and Galaxy Tab have found some success moonlighting as virtual readers, but they're first and foremost devices for apps and browsing the Web. Plus, they're a lot more expensive. The NOOKcolor is $249 of straight-up, reading-focused hardware and software. You can still browse the Web and do other things...

NOOKcolor E-Reader Targets iPad, Declares Reading the 'Killer App'

Earlier today at its Union Square location in downtown Manhattan, Barnes & Noble announced the latest addition to the Nook family of readers: the NOOKcolor. The seven-inch tablet packs a full-color touch screen, runs Android (though won't have access to the Android Market) and has Apple's iPad squarely in its sights. The $249 device has a reading-first focus, treating apps and Web-browsing as...

You'll need a Barnes & Noble account to start, and then you'll need to register with PubIt!, which entails providing your tax and banking information. Once you're all signed...

Barnes & Noble Updates Nook App for iPhone, iPad and PC

Earlier this summer, Barnes & Noble slashed the price of its e-reader, and last month announced a Nook desktop app geared toward students. Now the big-box bookseller is re-branding and revamping the iPhone, iPad and PC versions of its Nook apps as part of the continuing e-reader war. According to Engadget, the formerly titled Barnes & Noble e-reader products now sport the 'Nook' brand...

NOOKstudy Wants to Be the Future of the Classroom: Hands On

When Barnes & Noble announced NOOKstudy a few weeks back, we were cautiously optimistic that it was an early salvo in the war on traditional textbooks. We were "really excited, less about NOOKstudy itself than for the future that it portends." Well, NOOKstudy has hit the Web, and we've given it a good once over. Does it fulfill the hype? Or, does it at least offer a tantalizing glimpse at the...

Barnes and Noble to Launch NOOKstudy, We Wax Optimistic About Students' Futures

Say what you will about the iPad ("Ugh, I can't video Skype on it!"), or about e-books in general ("Overpriced hooey!"), but, readers, please calm your vitriol for a moment. The real advantage of this hand-held tech is not the fact that you can download your latest Patricia Cornwall novel wirelessly, nor that you can smite some sows with bitchin' birds in full HD. Portable devices like these are,...

Nook and Kindle Get Price Cuts, E-Reader War Heat Up

This morning, we got official word that Barnes and Noble would be releasing a new model of the Nook that ditches its 3G radio and relies entirely on Wi-Fi for its connectivity. The newest member of the Nook family of e-readers hit shelves at the bargain price of $149.99, making most other e-readers on the market look ridiculously over-priced. To make matters worse for the competition, Barnes and...

Details concerning a Barnes & Noble iPad app have also emerged, including news that it will feature customizable color fonts and quick "finger swipe" page turns. [From: Engadget] Another...

Barnes and Noble Nook Finally in Stock, Still Not That Compelling

While the Kindle has been met with nearly universal (and, at least in this writer's opinion, undeserved) praise, its most visible competitor -- the Nook -- has been dogged by issues including a generally lukewarm reception and an almost complete lack of availability. Well, Barnes and Noble has finally ramped up production and removed the "out of stock" label on its Web site. Just in time for...

Barnes & Noble Nook E-Reader Reviewed, Yawns Abound

We've seen the Barnes & Noble Nook in the news quite a bit lately -- and not necessarily for the right reasons, either, after its pre-holiday release was postponed to a decidedly post-holiday January 11th. A few lucky pre-orderers will get their Nooks today, but very few have had enough time with the gadgets to write reviews. The results? Positive, but not exactly a perfect machine. While...

Gift Guide: Barnes & Noble Nook eBook Reader

Earth Lover, Best Under $500 Barnes & Noble Nook eBook Reader With the endless flow of eReaders hitting the streets every few hours now, the market has gotten thick real quick. The Kindle is obviously the iPod of the bunch so far, but we think Barnes & Noble's Nook is a real contender for the title. It's gorgeous, fun to use, extremely versatile, small enough for a big pocket (7.7 x...

Barnes & Noble Working on a Kindle Competitor?

Everyone else is doing it, so why not Barnes & Noble too? That's the talk following last week's CTIA at least, where mysterious "insiders" were reportedly abuzz about the possibility of a B&N e-book reader that, like the Kindle, would supposedly be tied to a cellular carrier for some Whispernet-like connectivity. According to one of those insiders, Barnes & Noble had apparently first...
