Paul Lilly

Barnes & Noble insists the latest Nook Color firmware upgrade (version 1.1.0) is a minor update, but collectively it improves the eReader on multiple fronts. Here's what's included:

  • Improvements to Wi-Fi connectivity
  • Improvements to Home and Shop performance
  • Adds ability to Pinch to Zoom in browser
  • Enhance the reading experience for magazines and children's books
  • Adds a text banner to easily identify Nook kids Read to Me books

Also of note are "general bug fixes and performance improvements," of which B&N didn't elaborate. If you own a Nook Color, you can expect to receive the update via Wi-Fi over the next few days, or you can manually download the latest firmware from here (166MB download).
