Spring Design has partnered with Borders to sell their Alex e-book reader. Borders will be selling the device in their retail stores and will create a digital book store and some “mobile eBook applications.” Spring Design has also announced that the device will cost $359 when it is released on February 22, 2010.
So, Spring Design sues Barnes & and Noble for stealing their design and then partners with their biggest competitor for the Alex. Wise decision.
I couldn’t find the press release on Spring Design’s website but Engadget is hosting it on theirs.
