Hungry for more nook news this weekend? Of course you are…
Engadget received a hands-on and some glamor shots from a tipster. No word on whether this was someone who received their nook early, or whether they had a pre-production unit. Hopefully it wasn’t the final shipping unit, since the big complaint was that the unit was very laggy, especially the lower color screen. Also, the tipster confirmed that in-store browsing would only be for an hour at a time, and that it would not be turned on until 2010. Which is too bad, but if you’ve ever been in a retail store around the holidays, I don’t think you’d decide that December 23rd was the best time to test your new nook’s browsing options.
Second, Barnes and Noble’s own Unbound blog has confirmed there will be in-store demo units at every Barnes and Noble on Monday, but no nooks for retail sale until January. There’s a Barnes and Noble by my office, so if I can break away on Monday I plan to confirm this claim!
Did you pre-order a nook? Are you stalking the UPS man until it arrives? If you’ve received your nook and you have any thoughts, share them below!
