nook-1-5-updatePeople may have thought Barnes and Noble would be close to finished supporting their Android-based eReader once they come out with a full-fledged Android app, but that isn’t the case at all. The good folks over at their blog have updated everyone on their developments: 1.5 is definitely coming. Some of the things you can look forward to in what they’re calling the biggest firmware upgrade since the device was released are faster page turn speeds on 3G and Wi-Fi, improved search, password protection, customized library organization, page synching and bookmarking with Nook’s apps on iOS, Android, and PC, and more. Sounds pretty nice if you fancy this over the Kindle or other competing products. We’ll be on the lookout for this one come late November and we’ll be sure to update you guys as soon as it’s available.
