Taking a page from Henry Ford, you can get this new Nook in every color you want — as long as it’s black.
Gleaned from This is My Next live coverage:
- Under 7.5 ounces, 5 x 6.5 inches
- 800MHz TI OMAP 3
- Android 2.1
Despite my crap PC, I used my god-like powers to monitor Search Twitter with two terms and to watch the This is My Next live coverage.
So I can tell you this, which no one else will:
Nate of The Digital Reader was the first person on the entire Internet to reveal what it looked like: First look at the new Nook
And I don’t know how the hell they did it, but these guys had the first pure post: Exclusive First Look: Barnes & Noble’s New Nook Is Lightest E-Reader Ever, which includes exclusive quotes from Lynch and information not found anywhere else — which seems to include images supplied by Barnes & Noble itself!
Man, this thing is seriously freakin fugly!
It looks like the craptastic Cruz Reader!
Man, it’s just a dark fugly slab. It offends my eyes.

The Pre never looked that bad.
Seriously, square is the new shape of eBooks?
