At the same time, All Things Digital spotted a new player in the e-publishing game: “AT&T (T) provides wireless connections for Amazon’s (AMZN) Kindle, Sony’s (SNE) Daily Reader and Barnes & Noble’s (BKS) Nook. And the carrier said it added more than one million wireless data subscriptions for those ‘emerging devices’ last quarter.”
