I second that. I completely don't see a need for Nook 2.
One other thing that comes to mind, is that if you paid for the lost nook with cc, perhaps the card has free insurance for this sort of accidents? I know mastercard offers free expansion of warranty for electronics paid for with it by 1 year. Perhaps they have a benefit that can help you?
