BN eReader for iPad Released

Not to be left behind by Amazon’s Kindle App and Apple’s iBook’s App, Famed bookseller Barnes and Noble has just released the long awaited eReader App for iPad.

I think the best feature of B&N’s hardware ebook reader device the NOOK was the lend to a friend feature. The ability to lend books just like we would a paper and glue version has long been missing from readers like the Kindle. The “LendMe” feature allows you to lend or borrow books on any of the BN eReader platforms including “The Holy Trinity” (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch), Mac, PC or NOOK.

I love to read books, a trait I pick up from my mother, and there was no better way to consume books than with my Kindle 1. However, since the iPad gave me 3 major sources and growing of places to score really good content my Kindle is collecting dust. What has been you experience with eReading? Leave me a comment to insert your $.02.

Yeah Opera Mini for the iPhone… Finally!

Opera Mini for The iPhone

Opera today announced its popular mobile browser, Opera Mini has been approved for iPhone and iPod touch on the App Store. Opera Mini will be available as a free download within 24 hours, depending on market.

Opera Mini, with more than 50 million users worldwide, enables fast mobile Web browsing by compressing data by up to 90 percent before sending content to the device, resulting in significantly improved page loading. Users of the app will notice an uptake in speed, especially on slower networks such as the 2G Edge network. Surfing the Web with the Opera Mini App on iPhone and iPod touch will also help users save money because of its data compression capabilities. This will hold especially true while the user is incurring roaming charges.

“We are delighted to offer iPhone and iPod touch users a great browsing experience with the Opera Mini App,” said Lars Boilesen, CEO, Opera Software. “This app is another step toward Opera’s goal of bringing the Web to more people in more places.”

The Opera Mini App is available for free from the App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.
