NOOK from Barnes & Noble


The NOOK's E-Ink® display is as crisp and clear as a printed page. With no glare, adjustable font size and fast page turns, you can read comfortably for hours — even in bright sun. It stores up to 1,500 books and periodicals. Need even more space? Just slip in a memory card. It's an entire library light enough to take with you everywhere, so you'll never be without your favorites. LendMe™ technology lets you share books with friends. Just choose the book you want to share and send it to your friend's NOOK, computer or handheld device enabled with our free NOOK apps. Super-low power let's you read for for more than a week without recharging. The NOOK is available in both a WiFi edition and one with both WiFi and Wireless 3G.
