Barnes & Noble eBook Reader to be Announced Today

Today will see the official unveiling of the Barnes & Noble eBook Reader. Speculation has been rampant. We’ve heard that it will have a color screen, we’ve heard it won’t. We’ve heard all sorts of things. Gizmodo has some pictures and says that it will kinda, sorta, be both. According to their report it will have an e-ink screen similar to the Kindle, but also a color multi-touch screen like the iPhone/iPod Touch. I’m guessing we’ll know what the real deal is soon enough.

Update: Looks like I jumped the gun. The announcement will be next week, not today. The leak is today though.
