Next week Barnes & Noble is hosting a press conference and there is speculation that they will announce a new Nook at the event.
CNET has more: “For those of you who like to keep track of release dates, the Barnes & Noble Nook was announced on October 20, 2009. Almost to the day, Barnes & Noble has sent out an invite to members of the media, requesting their appearance at an event next Tuesday, October 26th in New York. We presume–but can’t confirm–that this is for the launch of a next-generation Nook e-reader.”
What will a new Nook look like? Perhaps it will have a color screen, or maybe they will even go in the direction of the tablet. Yesterday, Pandigital announced a new touchscreen eReader that uses eInk and Bookeen’s new Orizon will also employ this technology. It is possible that the new Nook will go in this direction.
Blogger Mike Cane wants to see them use Adobe’s DRM so that they books are more compatible with other devices. He’s also like to see the Nook sold internationally.
