As Amazon has shown with the Kindle apps, it's more important to sell e-books than e-book readers. That's why Barnes & Noble is releasing an app for Android phones that allows users to access and read Nook books.
Nook for Android allows full access to the Nook library, including any Nook books you may have purchased on other devices. The over one million titles in the e-book store are available too. Nook uses the same swipe-to-turn-pages, multiple fonts and bookmark syncing features that are common to e-book apps.
One of the biggest advantages of Nook for Android is using the LendMe technology. With a Nook e-reader or app, users can lend an e-book to a friend for free. With the ubiquity of Android phones, it's more likely for a friend to have an Android phone than a Nook, so lending e-books should be much easier.
