By "major" I meant in terms of manufacture and distribution. I couldn't tell you how many random brands of e-ink readers exist in the world right now, and I'm sure there's one with a replaceable battery. In terms of what's available to the mass market in the US, I feel it's reasonable to include nook, even if it hasn't shipped yet, simply because we can anticipate how many stores will carry it (at least 700) and how much visibility it will have to the general public (lots).
