    That is good news. It means B&N had enough NC units to get the sale and distribution of walmart. If B&N didn't have the numbers, walmart wouln't have been interested.

    When I looked for mine, I checked best buy's website, and it was in stock at 80% of the stores in my area. Doesn't appear to be a shortage.

    I don't know if inventory numbers have increased, but two weeks back my local BestBuys were selling out each shipment they got within the day. It's also kind of fun to go into B&N and see the small crowd near the front of the store, watching as someone explains how to use the NC.

    No I don't think there is a shortage. If fact, articles report B&N is producing 18k NC's per day and look to sell 1-1.5 million by end of 2011. The point I was making Walmart won't bring anything into their stores unless they know they can get a good supply in it.

    Interesting thought that the NC will be sold all over the place like the Kindle. The competition will hopefully drive more innovation.

    Yep, and I also hope with an expanding user base that we get more attention on the developer side too!

    Amazing that Foxconn can make all these NCs and the new Ipad2 at the same time.
