Buy Kindle from Amazon Prime Day, Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now

Barnes & Noble announced their hot new eBook reader dubbed nook in October.
The nook gives the Amazon Kindle a run for its money with the 2nd color screen and Android OS.
According to the WSJ the demand is so high that the shipping date of the nook is getting pushed back to December 11th for pre-orders that come in now.

B&N is quoted saying that the demand for the nook has surpassed their expectations.
If you pre-ordered the $259 nook right away you can still expect it to be shipped on November 30th. B&N is not very forthcoming with the expected shipping date on the nook product page. The December 11th or 2nd week of December shipping date is from a report on Brighthand.

This reminds me of the early days of the Amazon Kindle. As you might remember there were months long delays and speculations ran high that Amazon only produced a small batch of Kindle devices in the beginning to test the market.

Features of nook include 6-inch E-ink Vizplex ePaper display, 3.5 inch color touchscreen, 2GB memory, MicroSD card slot, and replaceable battery. The nook eReader supports EPUB, PDF, MP3 and photo formats. On top of that, nook runs Android and can use Wifi in addition to the 3G AT&T network.
