I just posted the article CES 2010: Alex e-reader is the Nook on steroids.

One major drawback of Barnes & Noble’s Nook e-reader is the lack of a Web browser, but Spring Design has fixed this problem with Alex, an e-reader that otherwise looks and acts quite similar to the Nook.

web access on an e-reader seems like a no brainer. The 2-screen implementation here looks a bit strange though, but if it works, it works.

Barnes & Nobel missed a real opportunity when they turned down the chance to incorporate the Alex into their plans for B&N resurgence. Instead, it appears they chose to save some money and build one that ‘looks’ like an Alex. Well, it does … But, if we can believe the reviews, it certainly doesn’t perform like one. If I was a B&N shareholder I’d be ticked.
