In May 2011, Barnes and Noble released a redesigned Nook e-book reader. The new Nook is thinner and lighter than its predecessor--theNook 1st edition. It has a 6" touchscreen, 2GB of built-in storage, Wi-Fi connectivity, and can run up to two months on a full battery charge. But, it lacks audio support, 3G, or a Web browser. Follow along as I crack open the 2011 Nook e-book reader.
