    Anyone actually received their's yet?

    Just got this from PC World who were supposedly in stock at the time of my order on the 9th May):

    Thank you for your recent PC WORLD order.

    Due to unforeseen circumstances, we regret to inform you that you may not receive your order within the delivery timescale indicated on the website. We will contact you shortly to discuss the matter with you, in the meantime please accept our apologies for the potential delay.
    They don't say! :/ Delivery date was supposed to be the 14th - still Nookless

    cool little gadget, though I still hate the punctuation issues here and there.

I have also put an order in with currys who expect to deliver by the 14th so if B&N sort themselves out I may end up with a spare.
    Sorry - missed this at the time - yes, both (one for work, one for me personally) arrived ok one on about the 5th and the other around the 16th. Demand was intense I guess!

    Mine arrived from B&N last weds (14th). I quite like it (lovely daylight readable screen) - still reading free ebooks despite its best efforts to shove paid content under my nose.

    Anyone have any idea how, ah, 'tweakable' these are? (XDA is blocked at work sad times)
    I'm not particularly interested in the e-reader bit.. But if it could be converted into a cheap low-spec tablet..

    Allegedly fairly easy to root and then you can install Google Play etc.
