    Tech site Gizmodo is all over the supposed Kindle killer from Barnes & Noble, called Nook. So thanks to them for first reporting what Jeff Bezos' ninja spies probably already know, having crawled up the side of B&N HQ using suction cups and stealth. Before, we were guessing. Here's what we know:

    Kindle Vs. Nook

    Price: $259 - $259

    Memory: 2 Gigs - 2 Gigs (expandable to 16 with micro SD card)

    Wi-Fi? Yes - Yes (free at B&N stores)

    Network: Sprint 3G - AT&T 3G

    Weight: 10.2 ounces - 11.2 ounces

    PDFs? Yes - Yes

    MP3s? Yes - Yes

    Short-term file sharing? No - Yes

    Screen size: about the same.

    Gizmodo gives Nook an initial thumbs-up (without having actually touched it yet) over Kindle. TechFlash will weigh in soon. The Nook site is live; see here for more official specs.
