Barnes & Noble is making a new Android-based Nook e-reader! Huzzah! The latter isn't exactly news - there's always a successor to the current model in the pipeline. But according to an in-depth report in The New York Times, the bookseller is preparing a new model of the Nook for release some time this spring. Executives, blissfully anonymous, were noted in the multi-page analysis of the current e-reader market. The new Nook was described as a "fifth device", implying that it's not a refresh or retread of the Nook Color, Nook Tablet or standard e-ink models.
