Well, well, well. Barnes and Noble's Simple Touch Nook made no mention of having web browsing capabilities. But if you type any URL into its search bar, that web page will magically appear before your eyes.
Barnes and Noble's Simple Touch Nook is not a reinvention of the e-reader in any way. It's a refinement, and a very good one at that.
Fact: Barnes & Noble is announcing something on Tuesday. Probable rumor: It's a full-color, Android-powered touchscreen e-reader. Question: How's it going to be better than a nook app on the Galaxy Tab? [Cnet]
Nook for Android has arrived, letting you read your Nook books and buy new titles on any Android phone. The app automatically syncs bookmarks and most recently read pages, and it includes LendMe, though your Droid disapproves of sharing.
If you've not received it yet, don't worry—it's speeding its way through the air, available as an update over Wi-Fi, with delicious promises of apps, games and a web browser amongst other little gifts.
