For those of you who like to keep track of release dates, the Barnes & Noble Nook was announced on October 20, 2009. Almost to the day, Barnes & Noble has sent out an invite to members of the media, requesting their appearance at an event next Tuesday, October 26th in New York. We presume--but can't confirm--that this is for the launch of a next-generation Nook e-reader.

We'll be covering the event and will have more details as soon as they emerge. Until then, feel free to speculate on what type of e-reader Barnes & Noble might announce. Will it be more in the some vein or will the company bring out something more cutting edge, maybe even a color e-reader?
