I got my nook today....
And I immediately put it on eBay. It sold for $550 *3 MINUTES* after I listed it.
The nook may be the best reader since sliced bread, but I can hold out with my Sony 600 until they become available. I mean, I just got it for free!
Let capitalism work for you: if you can wait until January, you can get a free nook, pre-orderers!

Congratulations! And Bummer. I was looking forward to reading a first hands on review.

(Do you think it's safe to list mine on Ebay now with an ETA for this week? )
Oh, and did that include shipping?

It's free because people can sell them and make up the cost of the Nook; thus, it crates the illusion of the Nook being free.
I may do the same when mine comes today.

I got a "your nook has been shipped" message a few minutes ago. So I am guessing it will arrive tomorrow or the next day?
I am excited. :-)

PDF support is ok but still not what I am looking for. On a PC you can zoom, search, use a TOC, etc. Still not the case on the Nook. At least with the files I tried. These are company manuals in a pretty generic format. The good news is most of it is very readable. If the GOTO feature could support going to a page number it would be very helpful. Since this could be solved with future software updates I am hoping for the best.
As for the general ereader functionality. It is very easy on the eyes. This is my first reader and I can see where I will get enjoyment out of it.
Content - I would like to see more magazine and newspapers available. Coming soon I guess. Size is comfortable but I would also like to try the Irex DR800 if it ever comes out.
Tomorrows task is to try to download something from my local library.

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.
