Update: Nook Color gets Tablet Features from v1.4.1 – Manually Download Today
>By James Lenhart
Barnes & Noble updated their Nook Color and Nook Tablet to v1.4.1 of the skinned Android OS. What’s great are the many multimedia features that both devices can take advantage of. While you can expect there to be a major performance difference between the two devices, we do think it’s awesome they’re releasing this version for both. Netflix is just one of many new features being added, but is one of the better additions along with Hulu Plus and others.
Owners of the Color or Tablet can get their hands on the update by waiting over the next week (the Nook will auto-install). Or you can download a copy here from B&N, and commence manual installation.
New features of 1.4.1
- Access to popular movies and TV shows streamed through Netflix
- NOOK Comics including the largest collection of Marvel graphic novels – with vivid colors & rich images, the action nearly jumps off the page. Your issues always in perfect condition to enjoy again & again.
- PagePerfect NOOK Books – a whole new category of NOOK Books carefully crafted to keep the precision and beauty of their stunning print versions. Zoom in on pictures, and fluidly scroll through pages of beautiful cookbooks, art books, and more.
- Over 100 enhancements, including reading NOOK Books in portrait and landscape modes, direct look-up of words in the built-in dictionary, increased font size selection, and more.
