    bb_navigationWhen we mentioned the free eReader application a few months back I did not know it had any affiliation with Barnes & Noble. Now it looks like it is owned by Barnes & Noble. They are offering their eBook reader for free for the BlackBerry 7130; Curve 8300, 8310, 8320, 8330, 8350i, 8900; Pearl 8100, 8110, 8120, 8130, 8220; BlackBerry 8703e, 8707, 8800, 8820, 8830; Bold 9000; Storm 9500, 9530.

    The Fictionwise eBook eReader gives you access to 500,000 public domain books along with 200,000 commercial eBooks. I am not sure if that number will grow but I love reading books on my BlackBerry so I hope it does.

    I have been wondering when Amazon will step in and bring the Kindle to the BlackBerry like they did with the iPhone. It looks like Barnes & Noble beat them to the punch!

    Check it out at this link or download it OTA at this link.

    Thanks to everybody who sent this in!

    Yeah, I was surprised too. Mobipocket is one of my favorite apps for my phone. It’d be nice if Amazon actually tried to leverage it instead of (as it would seem) letting it slowly rot on the vine. I mean, I can hate on iPhone as good as the next guy, but even I have to admit it’s ridiculous that they haven’t developed a read for that platform yet…

    The BN ebook reader is DREADFULLY SLOW. In the time it takes to load and format an ebook off my 8330’s SD card, I could download the text file from Gutenberg and be on page 50 in a text reader. Meanwhile the BN reader continues to struggle to format for my screen…
