    Just passing along what a store rep told me tonight: "hopefully" the update will be available next week (did not say what she was doing "hopefully" - waiting in hopes it will happen I guess - most people misuse that adverb ;) ).

    And she mentioned Honeycomb being available some time after FroYo ....

    Any of the rest of y'all hearing that rumor from B&N people?

    FWIW

    P.S. to moderators: blow this thread away if April 18 arrives with no FroYo (or update the "delivery date" ;) )

    Well we know for sure it's sometime this month, that's good enough for me.

    I'm ready for the update but I'm able to live without it - my NC is the best purchase I've made this year.

    Why go to 2.2 when you can skip to 2.3 with CM7?

    That's pretty much how I feel. I'd be more excited about the BN update if I didn't like CM7 RC4 so much.

    Well if you subscribe to magazines or have kids the B&N 2.2 update is huge. You can't get those outside of autonooter at the moment which means either no flash or no B&N special nook features.

    You could just download the B&N app right? Or does the NC have more?

    The app just allows books, not magazines or the read to me feature for kids.

    Either do I since being on 2.2 ;) Actually I did use the app to read a book in 2.2 but I really like the magazine feature.
