Barnes and Noble to make Nook more like iPad

April 26, 2011 4:34:29 AM PDT
Barnes and Noble is adding an applications store and an e-mail program for its Nook e-reader.

Among the more than 125 applications available Monday were the game Angry Birds and the cooking recipe vault Epicurious.

Barnes and Noble is also adding the ability to play more content on the Nook's web browser.

The changes will make the Nook work more like an iPad and other tablet computers.

The Nook costs $249.
