Nook Color Now Ships November 26th

Barnes & Noble’s new color eReader, Nook Color, is now expected to ship on November 26th, according to the retailer’s website.

The eReader was originally slated for shipment this Friday November 19th, but now it looks like the eReaders will be delayed until next Friday. The website did not say if the devices would be in stores by November 26th or not. But with the eReader now shipping the day after Thanksgiving — one of the biggest shopping days of the year– it is poised well for holiday sales.

The dedicated eReader includes a color touchscreen so that readers can experience digital books in full color. It retails for $249.
