NookColor update now available

The firmware update showed up on the B&N website last night, and I'm told it's currently being pushed out to NC. They're calling it a minor update, and improvements include:

  • Improved performance of Wi-Fi connectivity, Home and Shop.
  • Ability to pinch and zoom in browser.
  • Enhanced reading experience for magazines and children's books.
  • Access helpful NOOKcolor related information and support tips on the new default browser home page.
  • Reduce mistyped passwords with "show password" option during registration and Wi-Fi set up.
  • Easily identify NOOK kids Read To Me™ books with a new text banner next to the titles in Shop.
  • General bug fixes and performance improvements.

Did you notice pinch-zoom now works in the browser? Oh, how I want one.

  1. I also wonder if -/+ zoom works on the first press in the browser now. Seems I *always* have to bring up the onscreen controls in the browser, press + (does nothing), then do it all again to zoom once.

  2. And to answer my 1st post (sorry for all of these):

    NO: ePub files still cannot be viewed in landscape mode.

    NO: The +/- zoom issue in the browser is not fixed.
