New Nook Gets Early Availability

We just posted our hands-on with the new touchscreen Nook e-reader, and we’ll have a full review in a couple days — but if you can’t wait (or don’t care what we think), B&N has actually started selling the things ahead of schedule. Pre-orders have shipped, online orders are shipping now, and devices will be in-store on Thursday and in stock on Monday.

Thinking about whether to buy this or the new Kobo eReader Touch? I’ll have both on hand in about a week, so if you hold tight I’ll be doing a head-to-head comparison.
