Nook eBookStore app now available on Android with support for ebook lending

July 22, 2010, By Thomas Antony

Barnes & Noble has announced that their eBookStore is now available for use on the wide range of Android devices on the market rather than being restricted to the users of their Nook e-reader. This is close on the heels of Amazon releasing their Kindle ebook reader app on the same platform a few weeks ago. Considering that the Android devices currently on the market sport some rather large screens ( like the Evo 4G and Droid X to name a few ), this is a pretty good move on the part of B&N to promote their platform.

The new Nook for Android will run on devices running Android 1.6 or above and will come with the ability to shop Barnes & Noble’s expansive eBookStore of more than one million ebooks, including new releases, bestsellers and free classics, and download titles in seconds. Any customer’s personal Barnes & Noble eBook library – purchased on a NOOK eBook Reader, online at BN.com or on another BN eReader-enabled device – will easily sync to their device in seconds so their library goes wherever they go. Android users can also use Barnes & Noble’s unique eBook lending feature to share their favorite eBooks with friends.
Also coming soon are NOOK for iPhone®, NOOK for iPad™, and others in the coming months. If you are a Droidster, head over to the Android marketplace now to get the Nook eReader. Those signing up for a new BN.com account when downloading the new application, will also find three Barnes & Noble Classics Series eBooks – Dracula, Little Women and Pride & Prejudice – in their libraries, along with samples of two current bestselling eBooks.
