Barnes & Noble has seemingly branded an ebook reader that will see the light of day next week, probably as a rival for the famous Kindle. The pictures below are mockups made available by Gizmodo and they show a pretty decent device, probably more impressive than one might have hoped.
The ebook reader packs an 800 x 600 pixel paper screen, a small “multi-touch” LCD, with support for full color book browsing and searching for content and notes. Barnes & Nobles titles sold in stores are also supported as well as Google book downloads.
We should mention that B&N released the IRex reader last month, so it’s pretty strange to see another release so soon.
