It seems Barnes & Noble is having serious problems with their suppliers, as the company has started delaying their orders upto Feb 15. After the scraping of original Nook 3G due to supplier issues, Nook Color seems to be in the trouble too. We hope there is something good hidden in it, but that does not seem to be the case.
Anyways, find the B&N order delay mail below.
America has fallen in love with NOOKcolor.
