B&N on the iPad

There is yet to be anything official from Apple, so we don’t know its stance on competing ereaders for the ipad, but at least one major competitor has announced its intention in no uncertain terms. Barnes and Noble:

We’ve been getting lots of questions from customers, so we wanted to confirm that we will soon be adding a new B&N eReader for iPad – continuing to fulfill our promise of providing consumers any book, any time, any where.

Designed specifically for the iPad, our new B&N eReader will give our customers access to more than one million eBooks, magazines and newspapers in the Barnes & Noble eBookstore, as well as the existing content in their Barnes & Noble digital library. (That includes eBooks and content customers have downloaded to their nook™ eBook reader.)

I’m hoping that Apple’s reasonable about this – after all, the iBookstore will be US only for the foreseeable future. And if I can run stanza, kindle (and even the B&N reader) on my iPad, I’ll be happy 🙂
