I actually opened mine

OK, I love new gadgets MORE (much much more) than I love easy money. I opened my Nook as soon as it arrived. It got here around 445pm PST, played with it for 30 minutes then had to go to a concert. Got home and have been playing with it for the last hour. Will post detailed impressions later (in the appropriate thread), but generally:
-it is faster than my Sony PRS-500 (not saying much I know)
-ePub page flips are ~ 1 sec on a couple of test books
-PDF Reflow does work but page flips are 2-3 sec
-need to compare it side by side with a Kindle for a real speed comparison

From the About Screen (page 2)
Software Version 1.0.0
Modem firmware version L2_0_0_7AP
MAC address 00:01:36:xx:xx:xx

For some reason picture uploading isn't working right now, will try again later.

It's a nice bit of hardware, interface could be quicker (hopefully a firmware fix will be out soon) but no regrets about getting one and actually keeping it to use.
