Update: According to B&N, there have been three cases of the power adapter included with the Nook breaking apart while in a socker. More information will be provided as the company works with the US Consumer Product Safety Commission on a public product recall. The full statement is below.

We doubt the 7-inch sales boost is due to any Apple orders just yet, even if the report is true. The 9.7-inch panel sales will most likely go up has Apple prepares for the launch of the iPad 3 that is rumored to hit in the Spring.
