Barnes & Noble has announced that it’s going to spin off its colour tablet line, which will see third-party manufacturers produce the Android table range under the Nook name. In a press release, B&N explained that it will create a “partnership model for manufacturing in the competitive colour tablet market”.
According to a report by the New York Times, struggling bookmonger Barnes & Noble might be about to shelve its Nook ereader. The problem is one more common to physical books than tablets: nobody is buying them.
Sony’s got a new ereader. It’s actually quite nice. It’s just not as nice as all the other ereaders that are either out or about to be out. And sadly, it’s more expensive than its direct competitors, too. Poor Sony.
