The Barnes & Noble Nook Tablet will be in customers' hands a few days earlier than expected.
Like the Kindle Fire and Kindle Touch--both of which shipped ahead of schedule earlier this week--the Nook Tablet is actually running ahead of schedule. According to a Barnes & Noble spokesperson, customers who preordered the Nook Tablet for in-store pickup can do so on Wednesday. Likewise, online preorders will begin showing up on doorsteps on Wednesday. The Nook Tablet is expected to be available for sale in Barnes & Noble stores the following day.
The device was originally scheduled to hit stores on Friday.
Whether you preordered or not, though, you don't have to wait: CNET's got an updated hands-on preview of the Nook Tablet, with video.
