Yeah, the news is three days old.
So let me tell you what others haven’t: It has WiFi B/G/N, a micro SD Card slot, and an earphone jack for audio. The micro SD Card slot seems to be at the bottom, left.
Those are the features of its mainstream six-inch screen Reader. Except for that micro SD Card slot. That’s new. And is a clean break from Sony’s own Memory Stick format.
Two things that aren’t mentioned: a USB port or stylus. But those might not be required listings for FCC testing (although it is odd that the micro SD Card slot is mentioned).
I haven’t been keeping up with XDA Developers about the Nook Touch.
Today I’ve been trying to catch up and decided to drop a bunch of stuff in a post in case I actually buy a Nook Touch. I’ll need this info.

Also: There is no Bluetooth in the Nook Touch. It uses a different CPU package than the NookColor and it lacks the BT module the NookColor has.

iTunes 11 to get visual revamp, beefier iCloud ties?
Eventually Apple will lock down iTunes so that only Apple-purchased and Apple-related material will work with iTunes.
I fully expect syncing of non-iBooks eBooks to be prevented one day.
