Best Buy’s New eBook Area

Since I last posted about it, the Best Buy in lower Manhattan (near Apple Store Soho) moved its eBook area and also enlarged it.

They’re now carrying the Kindle DXG too. Plus, the Sony display has finally been upgraded and has working demo models of both the Pocket Touch and the Daily Touch.

Above: Three in a row: The must-avoid Sharper Image Literati, the must-avoid Pandigital Novel, and the should-avoid Barnes & Noble Nook.

Below: Nook, Kindle, and then Sony displays.

They also have a ton of accessories, including replacement Nook batteries(!).

You can try out the Nook and Sony devices. The Kindles and Literati are in demo loops. The Pandigital Model is a non-functional dummy (which, I think, closely approximates the actual device anyway).

Oddly, the Cruz Reader is off with the Android tablets — the Cruz Tablet and Archos 7 Home Tablet — and not with the eBook devices.
