Barnes & Noble isn't ready to give up on the E-Ink Nook

Just in time for beach reading, Barnes & Noble is releasing a new Nook with a 7.8-inch screen and waterproof design. Barnes & Noble has pumped the brakes on its Nook e-readers in the past few years, but it continues to release new devices sporadically. Last fall, it unveiled the Nook Tablet 10.1 and a companion keyboard that converts it into a makeshift laptop.
