I am waiting for the reviews of the firmware and the chance to hold the new nook. I don't like the look of it, but that won't tell me how it feels in my hands. My ipod has one button and I never saw a need for more.
Having used the Kobo wifi for a month, I loved it but the firmware wasn't the best. Holding it in my hands was very comfortable and I liked the quilted back. The page turning was slow, even after using it for awhile I still noticed it.
I returned it because I wanted a dictionary feature on all books. Never liked the current nook, but I have to say customer service at B&N has always been good for me.
Ignore the hype and wait for the reviews.
