New Nook firmware out – v1.4

Boy, have Barnes & Noble been busy today. First they announce a new Nook, then they drop the price of the current one, and now they release a new firmware. You can find the fimrware here. B&N is only announcing a few changes:

  1. Extended AT&T Wi-Fi Hotspot support — FREE and seamless connection to AT&T's entire nationwide Wi-Fi network including restaurants, hotels and additional locations, and wherever you see an AT&T Wi-Fi sign.
  2. New extra extra large font size
  3. Go-To Page feature allows users to go to a specific page in their eBook

That first one is simply awesome. It shows they fixed the Android Wifi problem. The Nook, like most other Android devices, doesn't like having to log in to a web page at a hotspot. It had trouble loading the log in page the last time I checked.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
