B&N to Release iPad eReader

Clever Barnes & Noble. Not only are they cleaning up with their own nook, they are putting out a free app around the time that the iPad will be released. You can access their eBooks, newspapers and magazines as well as a transfer content that has been downloaded on your nook, if you are one of the lucky ones to own one. The company also plans on updating free eReader software for Mac, PC, iPhone, iPod touch and Blackberry.

The iPad Has Finally Arrived

The iPad has finally become official. Steve Jobs introduced it at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in San Francisco yesterday. Weighing about 1.5 lbs. and with a 9.7" display, the tablet has a battery life of 10 hrs. and is packed with YouTube HD and the iTunes Store. Apple's idea is that the iPad is more than just an e-reader as you can watch TV, listen to tunes, play games and Web surf. What it won't do is more than one function at a time. Look for a price of $500.00 when it debuts in March.

A Kindle Development Kit will be available to developers beginning next month. Included is sample code documentation and the Kindle Simulator. Creative folk can come up with applications for both the 6" and 9.7" Kindle and can charge a one time fee, subscription or no fee. Amazon mentions that as there is no charge for use on the Kindle, content must be priced to cover costs of download and usage. Sign up if you would like to get in on the ground floor.
