Nook Color Update Adds Netflix Support, 100 Feature Enhancements

Paul Lilly

Owners of Barnes & Noble's Nook Color eBook reader now have access to the largest-ever software update to their device. According to B&N, the update adds over 100 feature enhancements, access to top video and music services, popular apps, comics, and more. One of the more subtle but most requested feature upgrades is the ability to read books in portrait or landscape mode, as well as more text and font size options to play with.

Perhaps the biggest addition ushered in by the Nook Color v1.4 update is streaming video, including Netflix support and a new Flixter app. Also new to v1.4 is Nook Comics, which includes the largest collection of Marvel graphic novels, and PagePerfect Nook Books, which is a whole new category of Nook books with images (think cookbooks, art books, and more).

The update will be rolled out over the next week, but if you don't feel like waiting for it, you can grab it today by heading over to here .
