Barnes & Noble is updating the Nook software to 1.5. This is the biggest update since the Nook launched last year.
B&N’s Paul Hochman blogged: “The 1.5 update includes improved search on the device, customized B&N Library organization and password protection. It also includes the ability to sync across all NOOK and all devices enabled with our free NOOK apps, by syncing your last page read.”
The update is expected to be available “late next month” and can be updated on the device through a Wi-Fi connection or manually at www.NOOK.com/support.
Nook for Android will also be getting an update, likely later this week. Nook’s Android version 2.3 includes the ability to highlight passages, delete books from the library, a tool to “Go To” a specific page number and the ability to search within a book.
