Nook color eReader shipping now for pre-order folks

The holiday season is upon us for sure and shopping for gifts is at the top of to-do lists for tons of people all around the world. Odds are you have a gadget hound on your list that would love a new eReader like the Nook color. Barnes & Noble has announced that it is now starting to ship the Nook color eReader, which is the latest in the Nook line up. If you have already pre-ordered the device, and put in your order early, you may be one of the select groups that get the new reader first.


Barnes & Noble states that the Nook color will start arriving at the door of those that pre-ordered today and will continue to ship throughout the week to pre-order customers. The pre-orders are being filled for those that ordered online and those that ordered in stores as well. B&N says that a "very limited" number of the Nook color devices will land in Barnes & Noble stores, Walmart, and Books-A-Million stores this week as well.

If you didn't pre-order and really want one of these things, you had better start looking at these stores daily. I suspect this will be one of the more popular eReaders this Christmas. The Nook color has a 7-inch VividView color touchscreen and delivers books, magazines and more content to readers. If you order the reader online today, you can expect to receiver your device around November 26. However, B&N says it will "adjust" that date as needed due to demand. That means there is no way of knowing exactly when the device will turn up for buyers. The Nook color sells for $249.
