Barnes & Noble claims great holiday sales thanks to Nook

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on January 3rd, 2011

Barnes & Noble hinted at the fact that the Nook may have led to a major turnaround in its business. They certainly needed it. The company said that its “comparable store sales,” or those at large stores open for more than 1.25 years, were almost double what they had expected, at 9.7 percent. So what happened? Not surprisingly, they credited sales of Nook e-readers to the overall spike and to having its best-ever single day of sales on December 23. Seems like the Nook has saved the day.

The company said that more details will be made available on January 6. The company’s paper sales have been declining, especially at retail, so they have turned more toward digital devices and Apple-style displays that push the Nook.

Barnes & Noble Nook Color announced

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2010

Barnes & Noble just announced its all-new Nook Color, an Android tablet with a 7-inch color touchscreen. B&N is calling it a hybrid of e-reader and tablet, and it even sports a full-on tablet-style UI, along with Facebook and Twitter integration.

Other features include built-in WiFi (802.11b/g/n) and 8GB of storage, but no 3G. The price is $249. For that price you get a decent screen thanks to the “VividView,” 16 million color, 1024 x 600 IPS display. Not sure how we feel about that corner handle though.

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on June 21st, 2010

Great news for Nook fans. Looks like an all-white, Wi-Fi only version goes on sale today for $150. Better news is that the 3G version has also dropped by $60. That means that the classic nook is now $200. The only differences between the $150 Wi-Fi nook and the $200 3G nook are: Wi-Fi vs 3G, the Wi-Fi has a white back, the 3G has a grey back and the Wi-Fi is 11.6 ounces while the nook 3G is 12.1 ounces.

You are good to go with either, but that $200 Nook is worth it just to make sure you have perpetual, free access from anywhere. Great news!

Barnes And Noble e-Book reader revealedIf you want to get a Nook for this holiday season, you better get on that right away. The Nook is proving so in demand that they are pushing the second wave of pre-orders into the first week of December.

Many customers are delaying their order until they see the e-book reader in person at Barnes & Noble.

That means that you may have to get it sight unseen if you want delivery before the holidays. The cost is $260.
