Nintendo adds e-books to video game device

According to BusinessWeek, Nintendo has added a book e-reader to its dual screen DSI XL handheld video game device. The device will be available in late March and in June users will be able to purchase out-of-copyright books in a package called the “100 Classic Book Collection.” According to the article, Nintendo is facing increased competition from the Apple mobile devices. Cammie Dunaway, executive vice president of sales and marketing for North America, commented, “It’s not really about trying to take on the e-book market. It’s just one more way to enjoy your device.”
