BARNES AND NOBLE OFFER FREE E-BOOKS READER

The E-book reader market as opened up with Barnes and Noble offering a free reader for PC, IPHONE, BLACKBERRY AND OTHER FORMATS.

This is from PC PRO magazine


"Barnes & Noble is taking a different approach from Amazon and its pricey standalone e-book reader, the Kindle. The big brick-and-mortar bookseller's e-book solution lets you read titles on devices you already own: your PC, Mac, BlackBerry, or iPhone. A more direct Kindle competitor for reading Barnes & Noble titles, the Plastic Logic eReader, is also in the works, but in meanwhile, I tried out the PC reader and gave the iPhone and Mac versions each a quick look. I found the PC version adequate, the iPhone one first-rate, and the Mac incarnation the poor sister of the lot."


YOU CAN DOWNLOAD THE FREE READER HERE FOR PC, IPHONE, BLACKBERRY, IPOD AND OTHER FORMATS

I downloaded Kindle onto my iPhone, so it appears Amazon has a similar program to the B&N one you mentioned. I used Kindle on my iPhone to read a short 10 page article, and it was fine for that. Don't know that i would attempt a book on it.

Well, right now there's no way I'm going to read lots of material on the computer. And certainly not on the phones. But maybe it'll work well for some people
