Barnes and Noble today confirmed rumours of its ebook, and with it took the fledgling device market into overdrive, Pocket-lint was on hand to grab a play and some pictures.

Up until now ebooks have featured just the one screen, this Nook takes this to the next level by adding a second 3.5-inch capacitive touchscreen display the size of the iPhone for navigating, making the Amazon Kindle and the Sony readers look decidedly dated. 

Specs include Wi-Fi, 3G connectivity via AT&T and a micro SD card slot so you can expand the storage capabilities over the 2GB of on-board memory. The screen will be Android powered.

Priced at $259 and available in the next couple of weeks (end of November), the nook should shake the market up considerably. 

We will add more photos when we get them.
