Touchscreen e-ink readers on the way

Posted on by Paul

The new Barnes & Noble ebook reader has been announced, and as expected it’s a touchscreen e-ink device. The new Nook is like a Kindle 3 with a touchscreen instead of that infuriating keyboard. Now if only I could get hold of one outside the US.

A similar device, the Kobo eReader Touch has also been announced. It’ll be easier to get hold of this one in the UK as WHSmith are stocking it.

Amazon are rumoured to be working on a new device too, but it may use a colour display like the iPad rather than black & white e-ink.
