Barnes and Noble Launches Nook Kids. Where's the Love for Teens?
Barnes and Noble recently launched Nook Kids, a collection of popular children's picture books that are interactive and available in full-color. The idea is to make B&N's e-reader something that kids can use, too, but what where's the love for teens?
Amazon has a new and improved Kindle out, but like B&N, they haven't made any attempts at making the devices appealing for teens. Plus, with iBooks available for the iPhone and iPad, these book retailers may be missing out on some their chance to get in with the demographic.
We've seen app developers breathe new life into Alice in Wonderland for the iPad, but when the Nook and Kindle are priced so much lower, there's a clear opportunity for the e-readers and their parent companies to step things up and offer exciting e-books for teens. Imagine Twilight with moving images or I Am Number Four with sound effects -- wouldn't that be amazing?
