Nook Tablet and firmware Update

The NOOK Tablet is available for pre-order now, and is expected to be available in-stores and on-line in plenty of time for the holidays! You can get the same reading experience plus HD movies, TV shows and music. Price is $249.

Current owners  of the NOOK Simple Touch can now get a firmware 1.1 update. The update provides for an enhanced E Ink® display for even better just-like-paper reading, even in bright sun. Plus, their Best-Text™ Technology now makes fonts even sharper and ultra-crisp. In addition, users can enjoy longer battery life, reading for over 2 months on a single charge*. The software update will be automatically downloaded to devices that are registered and connected to Wi-Fi®, beginning the week of November 7th and over the coming weeks. There's no need for you to take any action to receive the update. However, if you'd prefer to update your device immediately, the software update is also available via a manual download offered here .

NOOK Color owners should stay-tuned for a firmware update starting in December.
The software update yet will make NOOK Color better than ever with over 100 reading enhancements, the hottest music services, top comics & graphic novels, plus NOOK Color customers will be able to download Netflix to watch movies & TV shows and Hulu Plus™ will also be available for NOOK Color in the coming months.

Plus, just in time for holiday gift-giving, they re dropping the price on NOOK Simple Touch and NOOK Color. Effective immediately, the new and improved NOOK Simple Touch is just $99, while NOOK Color is only $199. So whether you’re looking to give the gift of NOOK this holiday, or just treat yourself, NOOK’s offerings are a great value!
