Nook Color Upgraded With Android 2.2 & Flash Video

I’ve been playing with my Nook Color for the past few days. Last Monday, 4/25/2011, Barnes & Noble pushed out a major software update to their Nook Color eReaders. Now my eReader has apps! I can listen to Pandora and surf the web even easier than before! There’s something new called “Nook Friends” where people can share their love of reading and share their ebooks too! You can connect with others, share opinions on books you are reading, and rate books you’ve read!

This software update (version 1.2.0) also included Android 2.2 and Adobe Flash Video 10.1 which, among other things,  allows you to view YouTube…. (20 minutes later)… Yes, YouTube works perfectly! And to top things off, B&N opened their Nook Color App Store with an initial offering of 125 apps to choose from. Outstanding!

Oh, did I mention you can read books (and magazines and newspapers) on the Nook Color as well! 😉
