Update, 4:07 p.m.: Plenty leaked out before the news conference. Learn about such features as friend-to-friend lending of books.
Today at 4 p.m. EST B&N will be holding its press conference in New York to announce its new reader. I’ll be there and if there is decent WiFi I’ll post on what I’ve seen (my kingdom for a wireless modem or a MiFi!). If not, then I’ll report when I get back home, which will probably be sometime around 9 to 10pm. A number of my techie friends are going absolutely bonkers about the possibility that the new unit will run Android. We’ll find out.
