[Best Syndication News] Barnes & Noble Inc. announced a strategic agreement with AT&T to provide free in-store Wi-Fi to any of their Barnes & Noble bookstores across the US. This Wi-Fi access is to encourage their new e-book service that offers both free public domain works as well as paid for books and they currently have over 700,000 eBook titles available and expect to have one million tiles very soon as they rapidly expand their available collection. They have around 500,000 public domain titles available.

There has been AT&T Wi-Fi network available to customers since 2005, but now anyone that walks into the store will be able to have complimentary and unlimited access to the network at all of their store locations.

There is a opt-in for customers that want to receive messages from Barnes & Nobles when they walk into the store to let them know about coupons or author book signing information.

AT&T currently offers Wi-Fi access at over 20,000 hotspots and are happy to see customers of Barnes & Noble get Wi-Fi access at no cost when they visit the retailer.

The eBooks are accessible with their free eBook reader that you can install on your iPhone and iPod touch; BlackBerry® smartphones, PC’s and Mac® laptops and desktop computers. So it really won't cost you an upfront fee like Amazon.com currently offers this might be the way to go. You can download the free eBook reader at http://www.barnesandnoble.com/ebooks/index.asp .
