Remember when I said that Spring Design’s new e-reader was similar to Barnes and Noble’s Nook? Turns out it might just be the other way around. Apparently Spring Design is suing B&N for ripping off their ideas. Spring Designs says they worked with B&N closely while developing their Alex e-reader. Obviously these two aren’t exactly the same, (and personally, I think that Alex’s LCD screen is way cooler than the Nook’s, but that the Nook has a better name, and just plain looks a bit nicer) but the similarities are undeniable.
So what do you think? Did B&N rip off Spring Design?
