The Apple iPad may have at least two eReader apps close to its April 3 launch as Barnes & Noble said today it will “soon be adding a new B&N eReader for iPad.”
The app is designed specifically for the iPad, giving readers access to more than a million eBooks, magazines, etc. from the B&N ebookstore. The B&N app should be released around the time the iPad launches, said B&N.
Assuming Apple approves the B&N app, it will join an Apple “iBooks app for iPad” app announced in January, which accesses eBooks through Apple’s new iBookstore.
