Barnes and Noble Announce $259 ‘Nook’ E-Book Reader

Good name and much nicer looking hardware than the Kindle, with a color touchscreen underneath the e-paper display instead of the Kindle’s clunky looking keyboard. Their tech specs comparison is explicitly aimed against the Kindle. Supports Wi-Fi, too — which is good, because the Nook’s 3G is provided by AT&T.
