Barnes and Noble will soon be releasing a new firmware update 1.5 that will be available on both Nook WIFI and Nook 3G models. This new update will dramatically increase page turn speeds and performance enhancements!
Most of these new updates are directly arbitrated to feedback by the Nook community, so it’s good Barnes and Noble is listening to their customer base.
The 1.5 update includes improved search on the device, customized B&N Library organization and will offer password protection on your device. It also includes the ability to sync across all NOOK and other devices enabled with our free NOOK apps, by syncing your last page read. If you forget your NOOK at home, use the NOOK app for iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, Android Smartphone or PC to pick up where you left off. And, the next time you pick up your NOOK, the Reading Now page will be updated and ready to go.
