    I'm still waiting and despite having received an email from B&N saying my order is scheduled to ship (on 1st May) there's no order against my account. No "it's shipped" email yet either. 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.

    I ordered from Sainsburys on Thursday and it came into my local store by Saturday morning. A colleague ordered Tuesday and it came in yesterday.

    Argos sold out instantly and were supposed to be getting more stock in last Tuesday, but haven't.

    Seems to be out of stock just about everywhere but PC World at the moment - anyone know when this offer ends?

    Mine has. I ordered it directly from the Nook website on 1st May.

    I think I might root it and install this modified Kindle app (along with Dropbox).

    Hold off, I was reading that Nooks are to get official Google Play appstore support + you can format shift with Calibre

    Had a play with Calibre last week - it's really nice. I suspect that using a dropbox directory for its data directory will make it work as a reader from different PCs too.

    Not arrived yet for me as far as I know (I ordered one as a gift for my mom). They somehow messed up my first order, which they cancelled and I placed another. It is sat 'in progress' on their site and they emailed saying they've got no stock left of the Simple one...

    So, it'll be dispatched when they have some more, or I can buy a more expensive one.

    Just checked with them on twitter, and they're telling everyone 3-4 business days. Some are replying that they were told that 5 days ago.

    Only the HD and HD+ models are getting Google Play. The eInk readers will not.

    Think Nook have totally underestimated how popular this offer would be.

    I too ordered it on the first day, they had payment problems for everyone so all orders were cancelled.

    I ordered a new touch one, then got the e-mail saying there were none in stock so ordered the glow one (for my Mum's 60th). Tried e-mailing, tweeting, chatting, phoning, no help at all. Not the best advert for them.

    Not sure what/if I'm going to actually get anything, not had any e-mails from them since Satuday.
