Nook Color Update Adds Netflix & New Features [News]

Ads by Google

Barnes & Noble’s recently unveiled Nook Tablet may be the newest and more exciting version, but that doesn’t mean that the company has discontinued or abandoned the Nook Color. Instead, they’ve dropped the price to $199 and continued onward.

If anything, it seems as if the Nook Tablet may be helping to enhance its less expensive cousin. Previously, B&N did not offer support for Netflix on the Color. Now that the Tablet has debuted with it, a new update is bringing it to the Color as well.

Also included in the update are other features found on the Tablet, such as access to the Nook Comics store and the PagePerfect feature.

B&N claims that Nook Comics has the largest digital selection of Marvel graphic novels besides Marvel itself. Each comic is provided in a high-resolution format to make sure no fidelity is lost in the digital transition.

PagePerfect is also aimed at providing high-quality eBooks, but isn’t aimed at comics alone.  It’s meant to provide a properly formatted reading experience when viewing books with numerous images, such as cookbooks.

There are numerous smaller updates and features included in the update. Revisions are made to the store, PDFs gain a thumbnail view, a built-in dictionary is added, among other things. You can download the upgrade now from B&N’s website or you can simply wait for the automatic update to take place in the coming days.
