SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up, April 28th 2011

Good news this morning, with Verizon's 4G LTE back online in time for the launch of the DROID Charge. But this is a black eye for Verizon, casting doubt on the reliability of their network, and leaving subscribers to wonder why they had to use a workaround to get 3G. We have a hands-on of the new white iPhone 4 that Chris Davies visited with in London, complete with a video and a comparison to the Samsung Galaxy S II. Also, users that had manually updated their Nook Color found their e-reader bricked after the 1.2 update was installed. No word yet on a fix, just that "engineers are investigating the issue". Also, the Huawei lawsuit, RIM's questionable OS update, the G-Slate, more on the Sony PSN story, plus the Samsung Galaxy S II launch in Korea. Lots more after the cut.

Some users facing bricked Nook Color eReaders after 1.2 update

Some users facing bricked Nook Color eReaders after 1.2 update

There were a lot of Nook Color users who were excited this week when the 1.2 update for the eReader firmware was launched. The Nook Color runs Android and the update brought with it new apps, features, and email access. This was the first big step from Barnes & Noble towards making the eReader into a real Android tablet. At the time, we told the owners of the tablet that they could either wait for the update to be applied automatically, or it could be applied manually.

NOOK Color Adds New Exclusive Game: Aces Bubble Popper

The Barnes & Noble NOOK Color eReader is really setting itself apart from the competition. Earlier this week, the eReader got a firmware update that brought new features including NOOK Email and apps. The ability to download apps is perhaps the niftiest part and included several games for the eReader. New games will likely be piled on quickly, and today's latest release is the Aces Bubble Popper from Concrete Software, who also released Aces Jewel Hunt and Pocket Ants for the device.

SlashGear Morning Wrap Up – April 25th 2011

In the news this morning: soon you will be able to get a white iPhone 4 that also "will not track you", and Google's mind control claims an unfortunate victim. Also, a superfast gaming notebook from ORIGIN, a crazy thin Thinkpad, and an update for the Nook Color. And a cell tower you can pack away in your suitcase.

We also have lots of tablet news: Acer, Lenovo and Dell are planning new slates. And in the Android world, the G2X will soon get a serving of Gingerbread, Skype has solved problems with its Android app, and Amazon will give you $$ for Android apps. We are also keeping an eye on the PlayStation Network, which is still down after an "external intrusion". Read on for more.

Nook Color gets email, apps and more with new update

Nook Color gets email, apps and more with new update

The eReader market is flooded with a bunch of devices that have the same basic functionality. Some are nowhere near as popular as other readers are though and while the Amazon Kindle is one of the most popular, it's not as interesting to some as the Nook Color. A color screen on an eReader is a unique feature right now and when you factor in that the Color runs the Android OS all sorts of hacks and mods are possible. For a while, users were doing just that with hacks and mods to get more functionality out of the device.

NOOK Color to be Carried by Staples

NOOK Color to be Carried by Staples

In a move that's aimed directly at Fathers and Mothers days, Staples will soon be picking up the NOOK Color in both its physical locations and online office supplies store. This is an oddity of an announcement if you consider the push Barnes & Noble has made to make sure everyone knows that this device is made for their books, their magazines, and their children's books. On the other hand, perhaps a fabulous cross-branding is exactly what the NOOK Color and Barnes & Noble needs to take off into outer space!
