Barnes and Noble to Offer eReader on iPad

Today Barnes and Noble announced that they are working on an iPad-specific version of their eReader software. What makes this of interest is that the eBooks you buy will be associated with your Barnes and Noble account, a departure from current iPhone app which tie your purchases to the app. This will allow Nook owners the option of moving their entire collection of eBooks to the iPad.

The app is scheduled to be released on April 3. This is a smart move for Barnes and Noble. By working with the iPad instead of trying to fight it, they have the potential to sell more eBooks, putting them ahead of Sony and making them a better competition with Amazon.
