A family of Android-based e-book readers and tablets from Barnes & Noble. Introduced in 2009, the monochrome E Ink devices are designed for book reading and extended battery life, which E Ink screens are noted for. The tablets, which feature an LCD color screen, are general-purpose Android devices; however, apps must be obtained from the Barnes & Noble online store. See tablet and E Ink.
