Battle of the e-readers: who wins?

3. Barnes & Noble’s Nook

of

The country’s biggest book retailer went up against Amazon and Apple by releasing the Nook e-reader in late 2009. The Nook sports many of the same specs and features as the Kindle and the iPad, but Barnes & Noble totes the fact that you can electronically “check out” any book from your local library if their online bookstore of 2 million titles doesn’t satisfy. Although the Nook combines the best of both worlds by incorporating e-ink (Amazon) and apps (Apple) in the same device, Barnes & Nobles’ e-reader hasn’t been able to gather as strong a following as some of its other competitors.

The Barnes & Noble Nook starts at $139.
