B&N releases nook update 1.4, finally adds go to page feature

My word, the day is finally here when we get a "go to page" feature on the Barnes and Noble nook eBook reader. Awesome, now we won't have to wear out the page forward and back buttons trying to jump many pages in a book.





The update also includes extended AT&T WiFi support, so your nook can connect to any AT&T WiFi hotspot in the country easily and for free.

Lastly, there's a new extra large font size.


The update is 61 megs and you'll have to download it over WiFi to your nook. If your nook isn't finding the update quickly enough or if you're not near WiFi, you can download it to your computer and copy the updater over USB to the nook. Just put the updater at the root level (not in a folder) of the nook and the ereader will see the update and automatically install it. My nook ran the update in 3 minutes.

In other good news, Barnes & Noble has dropped the price of the original nook with 3G by $50 to $199.
