That’s what the trademark filing I turned up tonight suggests!
And tonight I came across what is the alternate name for the Nook.
At 63, O’Bannon still had much to offer. They Bite was yet again being mooted as a possible production and his book, The Rules of Writing, was still looking for a publisher (please, someone).
Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
You lot make me sick.
You deserve your self-destruction.
I hope a digital book edition comes out to further shame all of you!

When we imitate we fail. When we innovate we succeed.
“We must do everything in our power to uphold the value of our content against the downward pressures exerted by the marketplace and the perception that “digital” means “cheap.”
Um…. doesn’t “marketplace” equal your ultimate customers?
You know, these pesky beings called readers?
As for “digital” meaning “cheap,” hey, thank the ePub pushers for that!
And also developers for the iPhone spinning out 99-cent apps. You know, that’s “digital” stuff that can actually do things.
Slashgear gets all the great info.
This is the bit that should make everyone drool first:
Perhaps most importantly for a web-browsing tablet, battery life estimates are impressive. Notion Ink reckon the smartpad will be good for up to 48hrs standby on its integrated rechargeable Li-Ion battery, 8hrs of HD video playback and 16hrs of internet surfing over WiFi. It seems it’s the eight-core Tegra T20 chipset that’s primarily responsible for such longevity, though Notion Ink can’t share any more details on that SoC itself. Meanwhile media playback isn’t sacrificed, and Notion Ink have apparently played three 1080p HD videos simultaneously with only a small loss in frames.
That is horsepower!
My current desktop PC can’t play one 1080 video — it can barely do standard YouTube most days.
