Submission + - The Kindle Killer Has Arrived (wired.com)

GeekZilla writes: Sleek, stylish and runs the Android OS. What's Not to like about Barnes and Noble's new eBook reader? Despite the odd name, the Nook looks like an eBook reader that would actually be a worthwhile investment. Best feature? The ability to loan eBooks you have downloaded to other Nook owners.

The reader, named the “Nook,” looks a lot like Amazon’s white plastic e-book, only instead of the chiclet-keyboard there is a color multi-touch screen, to be used as both a keyboard or to browse books, cover-flow style. The machine runs Google’s Android OS, will have wireless capability from an unspecified carrier and comes in at the same $260 as the now rather old-fashioned-looking Kindle.
