NOOK Color 1.2 update delivers E-Mail, Flash Support and 125 Apps

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on April 25th, 2011

The NOOK Color’s software was finally been updated with a bunch of new and useful features, thanks to the 1.2 update. The 1.2 update gives the NOOK Color much more potential to become a full-fledged honest to goodness tablet. The update includes a fully functioning email client, support for Adobe Flash player and Adobe Air, and you can also purchase apps.

The Nook color is sounding pretty right about now huh? There are already 125 apps, like Epicurious, Angry Birds and Pulse to name a few. The underlying Android OS has been updated to Android 2.2 (Froyo) and you can expect several system improvements, including better browser performance.

Nook Color pulled from shelves temporarily

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on February 3rd, 2011

The Nook Color has apparently been pulled from store shelves, but only temporarily. The ereader is backordered at Best Buy, and the Barnes & Noble site says that the device is not shipping for two weeks. They gave no reason, but several outlets are reporting that Barnes & Noble wants to make the Nook Color hack proof.

You might remember that the Nook Color was rooted and new unofficial Android OS firmware was available to turn it into a full blown Android tablet. It’s possible that Barnes & Noble feels that custom firmware allows users to download competing e-reading apps like Kindle. But who is going to want it after they “fix” it?

NookColor passes 650,000 subscriptions in two months

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on January 24th, 2011

Barnes and Noble has announced some interesting numbers. Since the 25th of December customers have ordered 150% more subscriptions than the total number sold over the entire previous 12 months. It amounts to a massive 650,000 in just two months.

This figure includes digital periodical subscriptions and single-issue e-magazines and e-newspapers from the NOOKnewsstand to NOOKcolor owners. Those are impressive numbers. No figures were released as to the number of NookColor devices that have been sold but the company says that sales “continue to be very strong.”

Barnes & Noble claims great holiday sales thanks to Nook

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on January 3rd, 2011

Barnes & Noble hinted at the fact that the Nook may have led to a major turnaround in its business. They certainly needed it. The company said that its “comparable store sales,” or those at large stores open for more than 1.25 years, were almost double what they had expected, at 9.7 percent. So what happened? Not surprisingly, they credited sales of Nook e-readers to the overall spike and to having its best-ever single day of sales on December 23. Seems like the Nook has saved the day.

The company said that more details will be made available on January 6. The company’s paper sales have been declining, especially at retail, so they have turned more toward digital devices and Apple-style displays that push the Nook.

Read Kindle books on your hacked NOOKcolor

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on December 29th, 2010

Rooting a device will allow you to install any app you want on it. It’s a pretty useful trick if you have the know-how. And now the Barnes & Noble NOOKcolor has fallen victim to this. The result is a NOOKcolor that allows you to read Kindle books. How do you like that irony?

Obviously Barnes & Noble is not happy about this. It doesn’t just stop at Amazon’s Kindle app, though. The rooting process in this case also added Gmail, YouTube and some other Android tricks to the NOOKcolor.

Nook Color to get Android 2.2 update in January

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on December 14th, 2010

The Nook Color will be getting updated to Android 2.2 in January. What does it add? Well, it turns the color eBook reader into an almost fully functioning Android tablet. How is that for an update? This update for the Nook Color will bring a re-tooled Android Market to the device, plus other features like pinch to zoom and a more traditional Android home screen.

This version of the Android Market will not be the full version, but a modified version that wont include the full apps. Android 2.2 will also bring battery improvements to the Nook Color, which should please users.

Nooka Zub Zayu Watch

Posted in Watches by Conner Flynn on November 4th, 2010

The Zub Zayu is the latest timepiece from Nooka and is part of the Zub collection. Zayu comes from the Japanese word, “Sayu”, meaning left and right, which is appropriate because the Nooka Zub Zayu is an asymmetrical watch with some interesting features.

Some of those features include the display with the hour “time capsule” graphic, an ergonomic asymmetrical design and a curved case back for a comfortable fit. We just like it because it’s different. The Zub Zayu is the first Nooka watch with a “sleepmode” to conserve the battery when not in use.

Barnes & Noble Nook Color announced

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on October 26th, 2010

Barnes & Noble just announced its all-new Nook Color, an Android tablet with a 7-inch color touchscreen. B&N is calling it a hybrid of e-reader and tablet, and it even sports a full-on tablet-style UI, along with Facebook and Twitter integration.

Other features include built-in WiFi (802.11b/g/n) and 8GB of storage, but no 3G. The price is $249. For that price you get a decent screen thanks to the “VividView,” 16 million color, 1024 x 600 IPS display. Not sure how we feel about that corner handle though.

Nook for kids coming soon

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on October 25th, 2010

Barnes & Noble will soon be rolling out Nook Kids, a collection of e-books aimed at young readers by offering over 12,000 titles to start with. Most of those will be “enhanced,” like Jamberry, with stuff like a page that shows blueberries that kids can pop.

It’s yet another thing you’ll need to buy for your kids. Damn expensive buggers. You could be living in a castle right this minute playing chess with real human pieces if it weren’t for those whiny little trolls. Oh well, what can you do? Get them Nook kids, that’s what.

New Nook is Android-based, full-color

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on October 22nd, 2010

Looks like the rumored Nook color e-reader from Barnes & Noble will be Android-powered and scheduled for an October 26th release. It will have a $249 price point. We aren’t sure what kind of color display this model will feature.

Hopefully one that can be viewed under direct sunlight. And we wouldn’t mind the ability to display video. If that date is correct then we will know soon. Stay tuned. You’ll get more info when we have it.

Periscope Lighted Folio goes pink and fits Kindle 2 and Nook

Posted in ebooks by Shane McGlaun on August 24th, 2010

I have used several eReaders over the years and they are nice as long as you have light to read by. Once it gets dark you can’t read from the screen of most eReaders, unless the reader uses a LCD like the iPad. EInk displays lack a backlight.

For the eReader like the Nook or Kindle 2 if you want to read in the dark you, need a light. Periscope has announced that its Lighted Folio is now available to fit the Kindle 2 and the Barnes & Noble Nook. It has the same hideaway dual LED light to read by.

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on July 13th, 2010

Barnes & Noble has announced the NOOKstudy online reading and study platform for students. The program allows students to manage eBooks and notes all in one place. Users will be able to access their textbooks, lecture notes, slides, images etc all from one place, which should make their college lives easier.

The best part is that students won’t have to carry those heavy textbooks around like they used to. It might save their aching backs. NOOKstudy is compatible with both Macs and Windows PCs, and is already being used in research institutions. Pretty nice.
