Barnes & Noble to Sell E-Books
Barnes & Noble is finally getting into the e-book business. Between it’s purchase of the FictionWise e-book seller and its partnership with Plastic Logic, maker of a yet-to-be released e-book reader, Barnes & Noble plans to sell e-books in a big way. According to the Wall Street Journal, BN plans to sell 700,000 titles (500,00 of which are public domain books from Google). In comparison, Amazon.com currently sells 300,000 electronic titles. As expected, the BN e-book format will not work on a Kindle or a Sony e-book reader, but will be compatible with the iPhone/iPod Touch and other mobile devices.
