Just picked mine up from Sainsburys - Foyles one not arrived yet. Rooting is about to commence.

Once you get it you will need to charge to at least 40% charge before you can root.

My John Lewis one was meant to be available at my Waitrose from 2pm yesterday, no SMS though.
Emailed them to ask what was going on and got no reply.

Went in to Waitrose today as I was in the vicinity anyway and found out they actually had no stock and had just not bothered to inform me.

Still, got 1 coming from Very by next week and picking one up from Currys on Sunday.

After this lack of communication & my HP Touchpad order being sent by Yodel (who didn't even attempt delivery) I will not be using John Lewis for anything ever again.

Not happy - already mentioned this in another post, but basically Foyles have only sent me one Nook when I ordered and paid for two :(

My order got cancelled by B&N, so now I am nookless :( The only place claiming to have it in stock (very/isme) won't let me make an account, no matter what I try. So it looks like I will be missing out on this bargain :'( next time maybe :)

I'm waiting for them to get back to me, my orders sat doing nothing, lots of unhappy people dealing with them on twitter as they are not letting anyone cancel anything despite clearly having no nooks left to send, their order despatch system is a bit of a joke and if you do want to return it you've got to post the thing to Poland. Don't think I'll buy hardware from them again if this is what they are like

Got a reply on twitter, in short it's in process and will be 4-5 days, not that it's a remotely generic response from nook

I rooted my Nook and installed Gapps using NookManager but I've found that the USB connection drops whenever I try transferring data over it. It's somewhat random so I might be able to transfer a single ebook but `if I try sening a dozen or so over from Adobe Digital Editions I'll run into problems.

I tried reverting back to stock using the Factory Reset option in Nook manager but that didn't seem to help, but rolling back using the backup I took before rooting does seem to have resolved the problem.

Has anyone else come across a similar problem ?

I have made a version of the Kindle app that is more optimised for the Nook eInk readers. It allows page turns via the volume keys (which can be configured using Nook Touch Mod Manager) and the page turn animations are also disabled.

My Very order says latest delivery is going to be 10th but if it isn't here by tomorrow I'm going to order one from Currys

I placed my order online early on 1st May directly with Nook, I got a "your order will ship soon" email a few hours later, then it all went quiet.
I had almost given up hope until I got a despatch email late last night.
The tracking links sent me through to UPS. Apparently it was collected from the Netherlands, then went to Belgium. If all goes to plan they should deliver to me in the UK sometime tomorrow.

For those who are still waiting, I hope you get yours too!

Nook number 1 is enroute in Belgium at the moment, no sign off nook number 2 though but that was ordered late on the 1st, hopefully I'll get a despatch note today/tomorrow, it does mean the one being given as a present will arrive before the weekend to actually be given on time

Bought this cheap sleeve from Amazon. Its just arrived and its okay for what it is.
http://www.amazon.co...ywords=CaseGuru

But its a generic "6 inch reader" sleeve and as such, its a very very tight fit on the sides.(maybe a tad too tight) I think this is because the Nook is slightly wider than the Kindle and Kobo models.

Still, its does a job. :)

I installed MMTracker on mine and some Memory Map OS Maps. Works well as a map reader, appart form ebooks this will be the main use for it.

I have also installed drop box, titanium backup and the modified Kindle reader.

I have ordered a " 7" Soft Sleeve Bag Case Cover Pouch For Tablet Ebook Reader Touchpad NetBook PC" from ebay (£1.80 delivered):
