Barnes & Noble's whipping up some breakfast on Nov. 7, and it looks like we've got some new hardware in store, too. At the very least, we're promised a "very special announcement." The odds are on seeing a new Nook Color -- and this just a week before the uber-hyped Amazon Kindle Fire starts shipping. Will what we get be able to extinguish the Kind Fire's, erm, fire? We'll find out next week.
