Nobody has any idea if the Nook is actually any good yet, but no matter: It's the perfect Christmas gift, in theory! Or at least it was until Barnes & Noble ran out of them.
Granted, it's a little worrisome that Barnes & Noble is taking pre-orders before letting reviewers have their say, so maybe this enforced waiting period is a good thing. At any rate, it'll be January — well after we'll have run B&N's Android-powered ereader through its paces — before anyone else will be able to get one. [B&N via Bits]
