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?

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.
