As we reported before, the "e-reader wars" are going to be heating up given that book retailer Barnes and Noble's new, branded e-reader is looming on the horizon.
The release of Barnes and Noble's e-book reader is likely to intensify the competition between Amazon.com's Kindle and Sony's E-Reader, especially given some attractive product features offered by the Barnes and Noble reader.
Gizmodo writes about the forthcoming device:
The layout will feature a black and white e-ink screen like the Kindle has--and a multitouch display like an iPhone underneath other.
According to a Barnes and Noble rep, the e-book reader will be manufacturer by Plastic Logic and will feature a color screen approximately the size of a paperback book.
Check out some of the first pictures of the Barnes and Noble ereader, which Gizmodo reports should be released next week.
