Barnes & Noble Readying Update to NOOK Firmware, Android App in November
Heads up NOOK owners, Barnes & Noble is readying another firmware update for you and your beloved e-Reader. The book giant says this will be the biggest update since the debut of the device last year and includes dramatically increased page turn speed, customized library organization, and password protection. Another much-desire feature, Reading Now, will let readers pick up wherever they last left off, across any and all devices. So if you leave your NOOK at home and want to pick up the Android app, there’s no wasted time trying to get back to whatever page it was you last read. The 1.5 software update is expected to be available in November via WiFi or manual download through the support page.
In a related note, Barnes & Noble is also prepping a v2.3 update for the Android application that will see “Go To” specific pages, searching within a book, highlighting, notes, an updated homes screen and much more! If you haven’t already, download NOOK for Android today!
