Nook E-Reader Coming to Barnes & Noble Stores Wednesday
Nook e-readers, tarnished upon launch with desperately late shipments post-Christmas and sluggish software that showed signs of rushing to market, will finally be available in Barnes & Noble stores starting Wednesday across the country.
Demo models have been available for months, but stock will start arriving in stores for purchase this week, giving the largest retail bookstore chain a distinct advantage over its e-reader brethren.
Sony's Reader can be seen at kiosks and Sony Style stores, which don't have the same penetration. Amazon has relatively few hands-on experiences available to its prospective buyers.
