I’ve taken you all along for the ride on my NOOK journey from my first experience with the original NOOK, to my excitement about the new NOOKColor at the end of 2010, to my drama this week when my NOOKColor went missing just when it was time to tell you about the NOOKColor updates!
Now it’s time for a NOOKColor update, just in time for Father’s Day gift ideas!
The NOOKColor received a firmware update taking all NOOKColor’s to version 1.2. To learn more visit Barnes and Noble where you can update your NOOKColor or learn how to determine if it automatically updated. New features include access to shop popular apps including Angry Birds (that’s the first one I downloaded!!), full-featured free email, support for Adobe Flash Player, new interactive titles in NOOK Kids, enhanced magazine navigation and more!
I already loved my NOOKColor primarily for reading books while traveling and reading children’s books in the ever-increasing NOOK library, but I am most excited to use my newly updated NOOKColor for the apps, the email access, and the interactive children’s books. My son was able to read fluently very early, so it is difficult to hold his attention with books that are content appropriate. He would rather run off to chapter books that are written for kids much older than five. With the animation and interactive features, books for kids his age come alive on the NOOKColor. I also downloaded my first app ever on my updated NOOKColor! I’m excited to find more apps that the whole family can enjoy.
Ready to enjoy the new features on the NOOKColor? One of you will win a $50 gift card to purchase more books for your NOOKColor, download new apps and more!
