Barnes & Noble Unveils World’s First Non-Ugly E-Reader


Damn! Now here's an e-reader we wouldn't mind being seen on public transportation with. Barnes & Noble just unveiled the Nook, the company's new Kindle killer, at a press event and we totally want one. It has everything Amazon's device does (including a $259 price tag), plus a color touch screen, an expandable memory slot, and the ability to read PDFs, which should make piracy a snap. It'll be available online and in B&N stores at the end of November. Books probably don't stand a chance.
