They’ve set themselves the target of having color ebook readers with mirasol panels on the market by the latter part of 2010, and are working with OEMs now to achieve that.

The Associated Press: Shift to e-books to hurt bookstores, analysts say
После объявления о начале продаж букридера B&N Уолл-стрит уронил акции компании. Goldman Sachs счел, что движение в сторону цифового формата книг наносит урон магазиннной модели B&N. Акции упали почти на 5%. Некоторая логика в этом есть (см. ссылку в предыдущем посте) — в перспективе компании придётся поменять весь бизнес, в отличие от Amazon. Впрочем, это ведь коснётся очень и очень многих компаний…
