Consumers, it seems, aren’t quite ready to declare the devoted e-reader market dead just yet — according to IDC, the space is set to grow by 24 percent globally in 2011. That’s especially good news for Barnes & Noble, as the company pushed to the top of the e-reader race for Q1, edging out Amazon’s industry-defining Kindle. The bookseller’s lead came thanks to its multiple devices, including the recently introduced touchscreen Nook and the tablet-esque Nook Color. The research firm credits the latter with Barnes & Noble’s surge in the standings, explaining that the Kindle’s colorless state has negatively impacted sales. Check out the sadly uncolorful press release below.
