Barnes & Noble expressed its intentions to launch a new e-reader on May 24.The announcement was discovered tucked away in an SEC filing, which Barnes & Noble wrote in accordance with a law to prevent insider trading.

The filing says: “[Barnes & Noble] indicated it expects to make an announcement on May 24, 2011 regarding the launch of a new eReader device.” 

This news comes just over a week after Barnes & Noble upgraded the Nook colour to a fully-functional Android 2.2 Froyo tablet with a web browser, email, and access to apps.

It’s possible the new e-reader could just be an updated to the black and white E Ink Nook. But there’s always the possibility that we’ll see a Honeycomb version of the Nook colour too.
