Barnes & Noble launches NOOK for iPhone

If for some reason you just don’t like to read eBooks on devices of a reasonable size, Barnes and Noble is happy to allow you to read them on your iPhone as well as iPod Touch. The new app is similar with the one already available on other devices as iPad, Android and even PC and synchronise the reading state between the above mentioned devices – so you can start reading at work and continue while driving ;). One feature worth mentioning that Amazon (and their Kindle platform) doesn’t offer is the ability to loan eBooks for up to two weeks right from the applications and between devices.
