Nook owners rejoice! The popular eBook reader from Barnes & Noble will be getting a major software update in the upcoming month. The update will increase the page turn speed on both the models of the Nook 3G and Wi-Fi. The update will also add some of the most requested features from the Nook readers.
This includes improved search performance on the device, customized Barnes & Noble library organization along with password protection and the ability to sync the last page read across multiple Nooks and all devices with the free Nook app. The Nook 1.5 software update for the NOOK will land sometime in November and will be available for download via Wi-Fi or from www.nook.com.
The Nook application for Android will also be getting an update which is expected later this week. The update will include the ability to go to a specific page, search within a book, view your highlights and notes, delete books from your Nook library and an updated home screen for making reading easier.
