Nook put into shade by delays

Posted by A Staff Writer

Heavy demand for the Barnes & Noble Nook e-reader means some customers won't get their gizmos until December 11th.

That's according to the Wall Street Journal. It said that the first rash of customers for the Nook will get their deliveries at the end of this month, the second on December 7th, and the latecomers to the e-reader ball by December 11th.

The Nook is based on Google Android technology and has a wi-fi function.

But Barnes & Noble is being coy about sales of the Nook, that competes with Amazon's Kindle and the Sony reader. Analysts have predicted that sales in the US will amount to three million this year.
