Surprise, a new Nook…

As expected, Barnes and Noble today announced a new Nook. The wi-fi only device has a touch interface (no buttons) and is available for pre-order for $139. It is scheduled to ship in time for Father’s Day. You can read the press release here.

There is a PDF of the device features on Barnes & Noble’s website. There are also more images and video of the new device on the site.

Just yesterday, Kobo announced its new touch reader, which will sell for $129 and is also shipping in June.

This means lots more choices for consumers. Currently, Amazon is rumored to be working on an android tablet to compete with the Nook Color. It will be interesting to see if Sony responds with price changes or new devices of its own.
