Thanks to John Fluke for the heads up. I have been an enthusiastic Kindle user since Kindle 2 was introduced in March. This looks interesting. Of course what would be best for consumers would be e-books that had a shared interface. On the other hand what I suspect is that we are in for another “Format War”. With the consumer as the battleground.  And yes there is a dental hook; competing proprietary formats keep us from easily sharing digital records, radiographs and such.

According to details that Barnes & Noble appears to have inadvertently posted on its Web site prior to this afternoon’s launch event, the color touchscreen device will cost $259 and run on the AT&T’s 3G wireless network. It will likely be the biggest challenger yet to Amazon’s popular Kindle e-reader
