Nook Color eBook Reader gets firmware update with pinch zooming and more
      #39804 - 01/27/11 07:06 PM

Barnes and Noble calls firmware update 1.1.0 a minor update, but we say adding web browser pinch to zoom, an enhanced magazine and children's books reading experience and faster Home and Shop performance pretty significant.

Other goodies include improved Wi-Fi connectivity (those issues seemed mostly fixed in 1.0.1 anyhow), a text banner that makes it easier to identify Nook Kids Read to Me books and the usual bug squashes.

Your Nook Color will automatically download and install the update over the next few days (make sure WiFi is turned on). If you're really in a hurry to get it right now, head over to Barnes & Noble's Nook Color software update page to get a downloadable zip file.

And don't forget to read our Nook Color review.
