Nook Simple Touch reduced to £29


The rootable, Android based Nook Simple Touch e-ink e-reader is currently reduced to £29 across the web... but you'll have to get in quick because it's selling out FAST!

The 6" device, detailed here, runs Android 2.1 Eclair underneath it's proprietary UI but you can root it and have some fun, as detailed in this LifeHacker article.

Most of the main stores (Argos, Sainsburys, Asda) have all sold out already but with some detective work we managed to find it in stock at Foyles... where delivery is free and you can also get 7% cashback courtesy of TopCashback!

As we said, you'll need to get in fast, they won't be around long!

Full details on the device itself can be found at the B&N site.

My order from nook seems to be alright, got a despatch email saying it was due out yesterday, then ordered a second as a present last night and got another despatch email within an hour. A lot of people on hukd are having issues though, my order status says credit card and then the usual last few digits if that's any help

I ordered at Blackwells, but my order has been "stuck" at "Credit Checking" for 24 hours already.
Could it be because I tried to ship the Nook to The Netherlands and they don't know what to do with my order? :)

Hopefully my second-class-shipped ones will be here tomorrow. :)

Same here. Did a google search and it seems like there's more then us having this "problem" not sure if all of them was outside uk though..

I ordered one from Foyles (delivery to ParcelMotel in Belfast for onward delivery to Cork) and I received a despatch email.

This was followed by an email telling me that the unit they were shipping had been damaged so I'd have to wait until replacements came into stock.

My order is still showing as complete/despatched.

if that's true I'd cancel and order from nook, I believe my order from yesterday is already on its way and that was the free postage option

I ordered two from Foyles and got a confirmation that the order had been accepted. About 15 minutes later, a work colleague tried to order and was told that they were taking "pre-orders" for shipping in January! I later received an email to say that my two had been despatched by 2nd class post. Hope I get them tomorrow...

Mine from Nook direct says the same, but it has done since I ordered it back on Tuesday.

I tweeted Nook Support (@NOOK_Care_UK) asking for an update last night and they replied "your order has already entered the shipping process".

Not particularly helpful. :(

I'm tempted to take a walk to John Lewis at lunchtime and see if I can pick one up from there instead.

The above link was about Blackwells. I've ordered from Foyles, and though they've not sent news it's shipped, my order is still listed as in progress. Have emailed them to ask about the January shipping date

Along with a UPS tracking link......... damn you Bank Holiday though, probably won't arrive until Tuesday at the earliest.

I didn't realise until I looked on hukd that they sent a despatch email. Guess my 2 are stuck in a warehouse somewhere, should have just tried tyre shop instead

The "Your NOOK Order Is On Its Way email" went out at 12:44 today complete with UPS tracking number, looks good, guess it'll be after the bank holiday now though

I have received two emails from Nook this morning:

"Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for your purchase. We want to provide an update on your order. You should expect to receive your NOOK® Simple Touch within the next 4-5 business days. We will email you parcel tracking information when your NOOK has shipped.

Thank you,

The NOOK Support Team"


"Dear Valued Customer,

You recently received an email from NOOK customer service indicating that your NOOK Simple Touch would be shipped shortly.

We apologize for this error but your credit card was not charged as NOOK Simple Touch is temporarily out of stock. We’re pleased to let you know that we do have inventory of NOOK Simple Touch GlowLight and you may place an order by visiting http://uk.nook.com/.

Thank you.

The NOOK Support Team"


My order at Blackwell's has been cancelled...

I'm not a happy bunny.
Edit: ended up ordering some more Nook from Very w/ TCB just in case.

I have received two emails from Nook this morning:


Did you make contact or did they? I've heard nothing on my orders since the middle of last week when I got a shipping date of the 1st but nothing else since. Must say I'm not thrilled with their service, might cancel if I can and order from curry's as they seem to think more stock is due this week

I've just received my order from Foyles. However, they've only sent me one when I ordered and paid for two! Tried calling them and got voicemail, so I've left a message. Not happy, might as well have got them on the high street :(
