Towards the end of March we posted details of the Nook Color update for April, and we can now confirm that the Nook Color v1.2 download went live today, which features Android 2.2 (Froyo), enhanced NOOK Books, a new app store, and Adobe Flash Player.
Barnes & Noble will make the upgrade live over Wi-Fi next week, but for now you can download manually if you wish via this link. The new app store includes a few improvements; one is an email app that will help you organize web mail. You will find 125 new apps in the store, and its reported that over 5,000 Android developers are building apps.
Those that cannot wait for the Wi-Fi upgrade can read manual download instructions in this article, which takes you through the simple process of updating your Nook Color to version 1.2.
It’s the view of Barnes & Noble that they have the best value for money tablet, which is much cheaper than Apple’s iPad 2. Would you agree?
