Barnes & Noble ebook pictures supposedly appear

Gizmodo is claiming to have exclusive pictures of the Barnes and Noble ebook expected to be announced on 20 October in New York.

Although details are sketchy and the images themselves are artist renders probably more at home on Yanko design, nonetheless what ebook fans will find most interesting is the inclusion of two screens.

According to the mock-up, one screen will offer an e-ink display for reading, while the other will sport a colour touchscreen panel for control.

The rumour certainly ties in with previous comments that a colour screen model was due in 2010. Although the bookseller has since confirmed that the comments by said individual weren't true, the inclusion of a colour screen for control not reading could still happen.

Pocket-lint will be at the NYC event on the 20 October.

We will keep you posted.
