    I remember reading somewhere that a plant that manufactured Ipads also made the Nook Color. Would the destruction of the Foxconn plant affect B&N's plans? I wish I knew what plants made them.

    Foxconn has two plants Chengdu and shenzhen. I think the Chengdu explosion did not affect ipads but not sure about nook

    According to Cali Lewis on Geekbeat.TV the explosion could reduce the amount of ipads available this year by at least a million units. Nothing was said about the Nooks.

    If it's not Apple it's not news worthy :(

    That's alot and I am skeptical as Chengdu only does up to 30% of ipads
