One of the biggest advantages Barnes & Noble’s Nook has had over the Kindle is that prospective purchasers can fondle one in store—the Kindle, available only online, is a “thing” more than a product.

Verizon’s John Johnson tells Beet.TV that they’re not planning on supporting Apple mobile devices in the near future.
