Kudos to B&N, but I do not think it’s the death knell for the eBook reader. E-book readers act like actual book, using surrounding light instead of of back lighting, which eases eye strain. Many people prefer that when reading for long amounts of time. because of that I think both will be around for a very ling time. However, if–or when–they develop color e-ink, who knows? Now that would make a huge difference.
