Publishers are counting on Barnes & Noble

The New York Times recently ran a long story about Barnes & Noble and how the fate of the traditional print publishing industry is tied to the fate of Barnes & Noble's retail outlets. Hidden inside that much longer story was a little tidbit about Barnes & Noble being set to launch the fifth Nook in the company's line of eReaders. There are no hard details about the upcoming eReader offered.

CNET thinks that the new eReader could fall on either side of the spectrum. The device can be a larger screen eReader to combat the iPad, or smaller screen eReader aimed at the low-end market. Barnes & Noble is also set to roll the Nook out in Europe starting with Britain.

With that in mind it would be no surprise to a see device customized European tastes. It's interesting that even though Barnes & Noble is in the eReader industry the traditional print publishing industry is rallying around Barnes & Noble and hoping that the company can keep its retail stores open. With Borders having gone out of business, Barnes & Noble retail chains the last large bookseller remaining.
