B&N eReader Coming Soon

Images of B&N’s new eReader have been leaked to Gizmodo, giving credence to rumors that the new device will be announced next week (B&N is not commenting).

The images don’t reveal a great deal. The new device looks similar to those already on the market, but with an iPhone-type interface.

Although Gizmodo did not reveal the name, other sites are, saying it will be called “Athena.”

The Kindle Review does a side-by-side comparison of the Athena and the Kindle, which is inconclusive, since so many features of the Athena are as yet unknown (book pricing, whether users can lend titles).
