B&N to discontinue the Nook 3G?

That's what Engadget are reporting.

They have a source within B&N (I wish I had one) that is telling them:

We've received hard evidence from within B&N that the Nook is being discontinued, with sales to seemingly continue until stock is exhausted. The outfit is encouraging retail partners to not send out any "bulk requests" for the Nook 3G, as there simply "will not be sufficient quantities to fulfill those orders."

I haven't heard anything on a new Nook, so I wouldn't think that B&N were planning to launch a new device. Also, there's nothing new at the FCC and all of B&N's existing FCC paperwork is linked to either the NookColor, Nook 3G, or Nook Wifi. Then again, the NC didn't show up on the FCC website until after the press conference.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
