New Nook to be announced on May 24

Barnes & Noble's SEC filing confirms a new Nook is coming. Get your wallets ready.

Here is proof that a new Barnes & Noble Nook is really on its way. Who says the Interwebs is just a rumor-mill? According to the Securities and Exchanges Commission Form 8-K filed by B&N yesterday:

"In a meeting with investor analysts on May 4, 2011, Barnes & Noble, Inc. (the “Company”) indicated it expects to make an announcement on May 24, 2011 regarding the launch of a new eReader device."

It's only been weeks that the Nook Color was updated and already a new model is imminent. Even Apple doesn't launch new products as quickly. Our friends at the Between the Lines blog have already summed up the business possibilities with this new device so you can speculate on the specs here. Let new rumors begin!
