Onward, e-readers: Nook -over Kindle (for now)

The Detroit Free Press reported on the recent releases of awaited e-readers with appealing upgrades: Barnes & Noble’s Nook and Borders Kobo e-reader came out last month.

“The Nook and Kobo share a welcome innovation: the addition of a touchscreen to the E-ink display, which looks just like paper, is readable in direct sunlight and doesn’t strain your eyes like a computer screen.”

Freep writer Mark W. Smith considers this quite the challenge to the industry’s dominant e-reader, heretofore: “The Amazon Kindle has had a pretty good ride.”

Amazon has since announced that it’s offering a 3G version of its ad-supported Kindle for $164.
