I would not trust Currys stock management out of office hours.
They very often show stock when there isn't any.

My Nook order with them from a week ago still has not shipped ( and it said available on May 9th when i ordered, so it should have shipped yesterday) !
They will have hundreds ( if not thousands) of backorders placed over the past week to ship, before they get to new orders.

Is converting Kindle books to Nook format easy? Would like to buy one for my mum but often take advantage of reduced price books on Amazon.

Look for (free) Calibre software. This will convert most formats to any other format.

It's very easy and perfectly legitimate to convert books. I'd suggest calibre (just use Google), it's an excellent solution

Agree. Calibre works a treat

I haven't bothered to convert books for this. Instead I have Android running on it and am using the Kindle app. It makes a really good e-reader supporting multiple formats. It also doubles as a mono web browser when I want that as well. Top device for the money IMHO.

Cool Reader also supports multiple formats.

Would advise anyone that is wanting one to order asap before they change the price too.

Brilliant, just ordered one at Asda, next day store pickup. This decvice is fantastic for the price, highly recommend.

Thanks, finally managed to grab one!

Anyone actually used one of these?
I have a Kindle and a Kobo touch, the Kobo is about to go on ebay because the page turn time is too slow, about 1 second, the Kindle is instant

Nothing to loose for £29, right? I think it is very good and fast.

Cheers OP, have ordered from Asda with store collection tomorrow. Will cancel the Currys one after I've picked the one up tomorrow!

Thank you, ordered, roll on Saturday

Thanks OP, I was let down by Blackwell's for this last week, but just ordered one from ASDA with free delivery.

Just ordered at Asda with free delivery. Thanks for sharing with us :-)

Finally managed to get one - ordered from asda for collection from store tomorrow. Thanks so much for posting OP - major heat added!

Cheers OP, ordered for collection in store. Really don't need this but at least it will past some time messing about with it and playing with different platforms

finally succumbed and ordered one for my daughter.

The beeb finance news site has it this morning that Microsoft is about to buy over the whole Nook division of Barnes & Noble - they already own 17% of the stock

anyone know where the Nook thread is explaining how to root the device etc etc.

thanks

Ordered from asda. Cheers. Heat added

Couldn't resist, even though I don't need it! Let's hope this order is fulfilled unlike the one from Blackwells.

thanks for the heads up OP - just ordered from Asda as Currys order still not despatched !!!!

Ordered from asda and staff discount made it even sweeter. Birthday present for mum sorted. Cheers OP!

To get the best out of the Nook you will want to root it.
Having already rooted a NST here is a quick 'how to' in two easy steps!
First things first, you need to charge your Nook to at least 40% - it will take about 1.5hrs from first charge
Second, register your Nook
Third, this is for firmware 1.2 (most likely the one you will receive)

Step 1 - Install NookManager

NookManager
forum.xda-developers.com/sho…351

Step 2

Install Google Apps Installer (Google Market)
forum.xda-developers.com/sho…582

Some apps I have installed that are e-ink friendly
CoolReader
FBReader
WikiDroid
Opera Mini
ColorDict

A good tip is to remap the Nook buttons which can be done via Nook Manager / Nook Touch Mod Manager
Another tip is to install NoFresh which switches off the 'screen refresh' works great with CoolReader

More can be done to optimise the Nook but it gets more technical - this should keep you busy for a while (_;)

Install Opera Mini. Much better than the stock browser. Also install the searchmarket app so you can search the market for apps (who'd have thought that). If you intend to update the firmware to 1.21, make sure you get it from the Barnes and Noble UK site as the one from the US site does not work.
