Walmart Getting Nook
Walmart announced Thursday that it will begin selling Barnes and Noble's Nook Ereader next week. The device will appear in 2,500 of Walmart's store as well as on Walmart.com.
The Nook will be advertised as the "premier Ebook reader in the consumer electronics area" of Walmart, the company said in a statement. Both the Wi-Fi and 3G versions of the Nook will be available.
Meanwhile, according to one report Thursday, the next version of the Nook will sport a full-color screen and run the Android operating system. CNET, citing a source close to the situation, said the new Nook will be unveiled Oct. 26. Barnes & Noble has scheduled a press event for that day.
