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.
