Update to Nook Color Firmware, Brings Version 1.1.0

The Nook Color has been selling like crazy, and for good reason — it’s a great e-reader, and also functions as a very capable Android Tablet. Because of this, we’re glad to see Barnes and Noble giving it the support they need, and they’ve released an update that includes a ton of bug fixes — though no Froyo yet. The update includes:

  • Improved performance of Wi-Fi connectivity, Home and Shop.
  • Ability to pinch and zoom in browser.
  • Enhanced reading experience for magazines and children’s books.
  • Access helpful NOOKcolor related information and support tips on the new
    default browser home page.
  • Reduce mistyped passwords with “show password” option during registration
    and Wi-Fi set up.
  • Easily identify NOOK kids Read To Me™ books with a new text banner next to
    the titles in Shop.
  • General bug fixes and performance improvements.

This is a big update, and brings lots of great stuff to the table, so head over to Barnes and Noble’s site to pick it up!

    Yeah, and now I have to go through 10 cycles of holding down the power button for at least 10 seconds each time just to turn the damn thing on. Its just a wonderful upgrade.
