Nook shipments delayed further for online orders Just one day after announcing that it was delaying retail shipments one week for its Nook e-reader, Barnes & Noble has announced that anyone who ordered online after November 20th would not be receiving their devices until January 11th, a week later than currently promised.
For those hoping to get the device in-store, B&N says there will be a limited amount available beginning December 7th.

The Nook is the first e-reader that is expected to significantly compete with market leader Amazon's Kindle, and the Nook has superior hardware including Wi-Fi, a microSD slot for added memory and a second touch screen, in color, which is used for control and navigation. The Kindle has none of those features, but does have superior battery life.
