Nook reviews are coming in

Well, Engadget has its review up for the much anticipated e-reader, the Barnes & Noble nook.  They cover the device very thoroughly, and include a video of the interface in action.  If you have any interest in the nook in particular or e-readers in general, I recommend taking a look.

If you'd prefer the short version:

Pros:  It's pretty.  The available library is huge, and buying books is an excellent experience.  Dual screens are a solid benefit.

Cons:  It's slow.  Interface is clunky, and occasionally buggy.

Basically, its a solid offering considering that e-reader tech is still in its infancy, but it isn't quite the kindle-killer some of us were hoping for.
