Barnes & Noble Announces E-Book App. for iPad; Amazon Might Jump Onboard as Well

Mar 12, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Apple’s iPad will become the battleground for e-books, says an article in PCWorld.

Barnes & Noble has announced an e-book app for the iPad, the new tablet device that Apple started taking pre-orders for today, Friday, March 12. Amazon may also provide an e-books app for the iPad, the article says. Both Amazon and Barnes & Noble already have their own e-book hardware devices, the Kindle and Nook, respectively. Sony also has an e-reader, and Samsung has announced one. Dell and others are also expected to come out with tabloid devices.

Both Amazon and Barnes and Noble have e-reader apps for Apple’s iPhone.

Says the article, "The prospects of multiple e-book stores on the iPad are interesting. Not only it would break Apple’s closed eco-system model of purchasing content from the iTunes/iBook store, but could also lead to fierce pricing competition."

Says the article.

  1. Thanks for your visiting this http://www.watchau.com online store.

  2. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.
