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.
