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. While Apple can run around cutting deals with the larger publishers, a built-in Barnes & Noble bookstore could include up to a million titles in one fell swoop, just like on B&N’s own Nook reader

Will Nook or Kindle survive the arrival of Apple’s Tablet?

If there is any competition to Amazon’s Kindle then that is Nook from Barnes & Noble. Like Kindle, Nook also costs $259. And although it looks a lot like Kindle there still are some differences – The major one being that Nook’s design is better than Kindle’s. The casing, page-turn button, its clickability and moreover the color touchscreen for navigation somehow makes it the winner in the overall look&feel and experience. In short Kindle definitely has tough competition from Nook.

But the real question is if either Nook or Kindle will survive the the launch of Apple’s tablet (in late January)? Lets wait and watch.
