In the large market for handheld eBook readers, it seems as if Amazon’s Kindle has always taken the most sales in the selective product lineup. The Nook, by Barnes & Noble, has been a new reader that has stolen the attention of many, with its two LCD display setup. Spring Designs however is filing a lawsuit dealing with the eBook product, stating that B&N were in the talks of a product like the Nook while under NDA agreements and that the company copied Spring Design’s product by offering two LCDs; though each screen has a different function in both of the products. It is not sure which way the lawsuit will go, but with the screens performing different functions in both cases, there does not seem to be too much of a debate, just similar design.
