Well, look at what we have here. At a local Barnes & Noble in Aventura, Florida, employees are handing out glossy Nook flyers. It’s double-sided, but doesn’t show the price, release date, or shipping date. According to the worker who handed me this, the Nook is coming out “next week”; we all knew that already. Look for the Nook on November 30th, and report back to LM if you happen to get yours early.

Continuing the “Holiday Gift Guide” is the Gaming category. I’m going to list the gaming consoles that your money deserves for this holiday shopping season. And of course the Xbox 360 is in there, why wouldn’t it be? Let’s begin with the Gift Guide for gaming, shall we?

Well, who ever guessed this? When I reported that the Zune HD would come in different colors, we all liked them, but never knew if they would come out. But now it’s official that 2 of them: Purple and Magenta, will make their debut on December 1st. Good timing.

The LG IQ (aka Monaco) is sure to please. It has a very high IQ as a matter of fact: GSM/GPRS/EDGE/UMTS/HSDPA (850/1900/2100MHz) which fit AT&T’s network, 3.2″ WVGA touchscreen, 480 x 800 screen resolution, Bluetooth 2.1 +EDR, WiFi (b/g), GPS, a fingerprint scanner, and a 5 megapixel camera. Nice package. It’s a QWERTY slider, and it will run Windows Mobile 6.5, and will get LG’s S-Class UI. All powered by the scrumptious Snapdragon processor. It’s going to Telus in Canada, and hopefully over here; it was supposed to come in November to AT&T, now supposedly coming in the holiday season. The full video is after the jump.

There! Another reason for you to buy a Mini 10v from Dell. When I said you could Hackintosh it in my “Holiday Gift Guide”, it wasn’t enough, was it? Thanks to Dell, Chrome OS can run on its native platform (a netbook), and you can even use Wi-Fi. The ISO can only function if you put it on a USB stick (8GB minimum).
Lenovo bought back Lenovo Mobile for the tune of $200 million. As you might not know, Lenovo has a mobile division in China sells an Android-based handset. In fact, Lenovo Mobile is the 3rd most popular handset maker in China. Hopefully with this purchase (re-purchase, whatever you want to call it) Lenovo will bring its handset over here; Dell is already in the party with its Mini 3i (in China and soon Brazil), so why not the real Lenovo? We’ll just have to wait and see if Lenovo can sum up the courage to actually provide some handsets to the US.
We were in doubt of the “true” Apple Black Friday deals. But here’s something very promising from the Apple Australia Store, which shows that some Apple products have been marked down, but not by much. And as we all know, when a foreign Apple site posts something new, it comes the next day on Apple US. UPDATED: See I told you so! The deals are live on Apple’s US site now. Go figure. Here’s the Apple Store US.

While most blogs are taking the day off, we’re continuing the day’s short supply of news.
GoogleGoogleGoogleGoogle. To some it might sound downright dumb, some strange, and to other people a person with “Google Fan Syndrome”. What it actually means is a new service that lets you make 4 Google searches all at once. You don’t need to open another tab or window. You just need to endlessly scroll up and down to get anything done. Still, it’s not bad, or perfect either.
