So I have another rumor today about Barnes & Noble. It’s not quite as juicy as my last B&N rumor, but this one looks pretty interesting, too . I don’t have much information yet, but I’m going to put this out there and see what turns up.
According to my source, B&N will be offering a limited edition Nook Touch on Friday. I’m told that it’s going to be white and sell for $80.
Update: And now that new Nook (with the cream colored backside) is listed on the B&N website. Oy. That didn’t take long.
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.
