First look at the Nook Touch’s hidden browser

Jane Litte of Dear Author pointed me at this picture. That's the mobile version of her website in the picture.

BTW, Nook Touch owners at MobileRead have continued to play with the browser, and one reported that:

The web browser is somewhat buggy, which is probably why they didn't release it, but it's faster and nicer than the K3 browser.

If you tap the upper-right corner that looks like an outline, you get a series of menus for various settings, including a Recent Downloads page...

I got a Notification in the title bar that a .pdf had downloaded, and it appears in the Downloads list, but I cannot locate the downloaded file.

So it looks like it won't be good for downloading ebooks, alas.

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."
