Crap - payed full price for the Nook Color just a few weeks ago - I knew I should have waited until closer to the holiday season. But my wife was all "nag, nag, nag, I wanna Nook, nag nag, nag..."

If your purchase was within the last several weeks, take your receipt back to the store and speak with the digital lead/manager. They might be able to help you out a bit.
I read and knit and dance. Compulsively feel yarn. Consume books. Darn tights. Drink too much caffiene. All that good stuff.

No bluetooth in the new NT, either?
<pounds head against wall>
I hope at least there will be a USB keyboard offered at some point, then. And BN could probably do well to offer a USB keyboard with a battery built in, like the Transformer keyboard or Lenovo's battery slice add-on for thinkpads, to really kick up the battery life.

Roustabout, is it confirmed there is no Bluetooth? I did not see it listed in the specs so I'm assuming there is no Bluetooth support. If so, that would be disappointing.
