Nook 1.1-update enables connection to Barnes & Noble stores and performance improvements

Dec 21, 2009

If you’ve been waiting to connect your Nook to Barnes & Noble wireless so that you can enjoy all the free browsing along with exclusive content and promotions – you can now do so after a quick over the air update with version 1.1 software. The update should also improve on core speed and performance improvements.

Over the last few weeks, we’ve had a terrific response from the first customers to experience nook. This week, we are conducting our first over the air update with version 1.1 software. nook 1.1 enables seamless connection of a customer’s nook in Barnes & Noble stores, providing exclusive content and promotions over our free Wi-Fi connection. This update also begins to provide some core speed and performance improvements and enhances the customer’s reading experience by enabling them to begin reading their content sooner. Information can be found at

nook offers a great out-of-the-box experience and, as with any new software, we will continue to optimize and expand nook’s capabilities using seamless over-air-updates which don’t require any action by the nook customer. We expect to conduct a larger nook software update early next year.
