My source called the new ereader the Nook Cream, but I'm not so sure that part is true. "Nook Cream" sounds more like a drink for the cafe, not a gadget. But since I don't have any pictures or brochures yet, I decided to share the name anyway.
While I may not be able to substantiate the product name, I did manage to confirm 1 detail. I've heard via another channel that at least one store has received boxes of a Nook product that isn't supposed to be opened until Friday. I did not get any info on what's in the boxes, just that they've arrived in the store. But that's enough to decide what I'll be doing on Friday.
If anyone knows more about this cream-colored Nook Touch, please let me know. Comments can be anonymous and I never reveal my sources.
