B&N Aims E-Books at Kids
Barnes & Noble Inc., intent on winning over a new generation of readers, including some who haven't yet learned to tie their shoes, is launching a digital collection of more than 12,000 books under the name Nook Kids.
At the core of those efforts is the Nook, the bookseller's electronic reader, which competes with such devices as Amazon.com Inc.'s Kindle and the iPad. The Nook has a black-and-white e-paper display, which doesn't capture the visual appeal of traditional picture books.
Interesting. I wonder how much of this ties in with Tuesday's big event.
Kids like color and interactivity and touch screens.
