Barnes and Noble Nook 2 is coming this month
According to a report filed on Saturday, the successor to the original Barnes and Noble Nook, the Nook 2, will launch this month. The Nook 2 may or may not run Android like the original E-Reader, but if it does , then expect some Honeycomb madness up in that baby.
According to sources at digitimes, Inventec and Pegatron will assemble the eReaders and supply as many as 2-3 million devices by the end of this year. The Nook Color 2 E Ink will be powered by “e-paper backplanes,” there will be a new E Ink component to the Nook Color 2, although it is unclear what its role will be at this point.
The new Nook is also expected to create some battle for the Amazon Tablets expected to launch in November.
