Barnes & Noble's partnership with Target comes more than a year after Amazon inked a Kindle retail partnership with the mega-retailer. Amazon's Kindle continues to be sold at Target.

Speaking of the Kindle, Amazon announced last week an update to its line of e-readers, led by the Kindle Fire tablet. That device, which comes with Android and a 7-inch display, retails for $199, making it a cheaper option than the Nook Color. The Kindle Fire is slated to launch next month.
