Barnes and Noble has just brought some eReader competition to the Android Market. With the Amazon Kindle already offering
the eReading experience to users of Google's open source operating system, Barnes and Noble announced today that it is making the nook available to Android users, and with it you can access over a million titles including some free eBooks, Bestsellers and some new releases. The nook will work on phones running Android 1.6 or higher and remembers where you left off reading a title, or left a bookmark across the Android platform. Turn pages with a flick of your finger, or you can enable animations to "enhance" your reading experience.
With the nook for Android, you have a choice of 8 different fonts in 5 varying sizes. You simply set up and sign in to your account and browse through Barnes and Nobles library or scan through book covers in your library. The booksellers exclusive LendMe technology allows you to share books with others. If you're looking to read newspapers or magazines, better head elsewhere because for the time being, those are not available. The software is available as a free download in the Android Market.
