Barnes & Noble Nook may run Android applications

Barnes & Noble officially unveiled its slick Nook eBook reader last week that will be powered by Android. The cool reader has an e-Ink display for reading and a secondary color display for viewing other content. At the time the device was announced Barnes and Noble was not clear on how much Android would play a roll in the device.

Ebook reader apps for Android have been in the Android Market for some time now, but we've yet to see a production ebook device that uses Google's open-source platform.  That could change imminently, however, with the unveiling of the Spring Design Alex ebook reader, a dual-display slate that has a standard 6-inch E Ink panel up top and a second, 3.5-inch color LCD touchscreen underneath, while Android runs the whole show.

We can thank the Amazon Kindle for all of the renewed interest in eReaders over the last year. The Kindle wasn't the first eReader, but it certainly grabbed the attention of buyers and commands the majority of the reader market according to analysts.
