Barnes & Noble Bookstore Built Into The Apple Tablet

The much awaited and the much talked about Apple Tablet will be launched on Wednesday, but out of all the varied rumors about the eReader one rumor pretty much confirmed to be a fact is that the Apple Tablet will be a full colored eReader (Now that might be a big worry for Amazon’s Kindle).

Newspaper and magazine publishers have been trying hard to get on to the device but something to think about here is that whether Apple will be adding these newspaper/magazines to their existing iTunes or will they be building a dedicated ebook store (like the iTunes store)

We believe there is a good chance there will be a Barnes & Noble bookstore built into the Apple Tablet, either as one of the showcase apps which launches with the device, powering a new book section in iTunes, or integrated directly into the Tablet’s e-reader. The two companies are thought to be working closely together, increasing the likelihood that Barnes & Noble will be part of the announcement on Wednesday.
