I wonder if thay will alow overseas shipping for the new nook.

I did a test order and it didn't block me from entering the order screen (like it use to when i tried to order the old nook some months back)

My checkout confirmed that they still don't ship to Canada. Unless I am just not lucky, this is still one major dissappointment from B&N.

Whoop!!!!!

Curious - I rec'd an email Monday saying that my order is "scheduled to ship", but both the note and online, and when I go to B&N to check, it still says June 10th.

Sounds like a PR announcement to me - no actual change, just getting their name out there again.

Corrected - at 1:11PST, I just got an email saying that it shipped !!!! Wow !!!

Way to get the drop on Kobo, and regain the buzz !

You mean, expecting for shipping or expecting to having those on store?

I think you're in Houston, right? Which one are you referring to, the one on 1960 and 249 or the one on Sugar Land? ...

According to PC Magazine:

Quote:
Though there's no Web browser on the Nook, if it's necessary to connect to a Wi-Fi network a browser page will pop up, so you can accept terms of service or log in.
That addresses some concerns about no web browser when connecting to WiFi at some locations.
