Pandigital Novel now in stock at BBB w\floor model

I heard reports over the weekend that Bed, Bath, and Beyond had the black Novel in stock. Naturally this piqued my curiosity, and I went to my local store Monday morning. Yes they did, and no they didn’t.
My local BBB store did receive a Fedex shipment on Friday, but it wasn’t for the black Novel. They got one white Novel and the display unit.

A couple people over at SlateDroid insist that their store got the black Novel, not white. You might want to get the white one, instead. The one key difference between the black and white models is that the black Novel has 2GB Flash soldered on board and the white Novel has a microSDHC card slot.You can replace the microSDHC card, and I know  several people over at SlateDroid who already have swapped the original 1GB card with a 16GB card. I don’t do video, so I’m not going to bother. But I can see the value.

I was hoping that the display model would be the black Novel, but it wasn’t. The display for the Novel was one of Pandigita’s digital picture frames. All it does is play a promo  video.

    Just picked one up at BBB. The card slot is SD, not MicroSD. The battery came fully charged. And wow, is the built-in software bad. First thing I did was install LauncherPro and Aldiko.

      No, the internal card slot is microSD.
