Barnes & Noble’s Nook e-reader Sets Sail Earlier than Expected

June 2, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Last week, Barnes & Nobles had revealed their all-new Nook e-reader. Just after the wraps went off, pre-order kicked off and has been getting massive response. The company had scheduled June 10 as the shipping date of the product. But, as of now, it looks like Barnes & Noble has already started shipping the all-new Nook, much earlier than the due date. That means your device is on its way!

The e-reader had caught the attention of many with features such as 6-inch touch-enabled E-ink display, which enables one to read clearly even in bright sunlight.

The device comes with a revamped control key feature and all navigation controls – except for the home button – were replaced.

The new e-reader was altered to be lighter, smaller, and is stocked with at least double the battery life in contrast to the rival Amazon Kindle. The e-reader needs to be charged only once in every two months.

Nook customers also will get a chance to access the world’s largest bookstore of more than 2 million books via WiFi. The all-new NOOK is set for a price of $139 at Barnes & Noble stores or you can also go online here.

The shipping has been started so that the gear would be reaching the customers in time for Father’s Day. Customers who like to check out the device can do so by stepping in to one of B&N’s 700 stores. The stores will be giving demonstrations of the device and its all new features.  Are you planning to pick one?
