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.
