If we have learned anything from Blockbuster it's that you need to embrace technology while you can. So, it makes sense that Barnes and Noble may be plotting their own e-Reader device.

Rumor has it that the bookseller is partnering with a manufacturer and a cellular carrier to develop the device, with Sprint (like the Kindle) or AT&T being the frontrunners. B&N took an unsuccessful journey with Microsoft down the eBook road before, but given the success of the Kindle it seems like a good time to get back in the game. And, of course, another major retailer developing a reader can only mean good things for consumers looking for a deal. [TheStreet]
