Despite the fact the Nook Tablet is now the flagship Nook at Barnes & Noble, the bookseller is still keeping its “second in line” up to date with new updates. Today, the Color received the 1.4.1 update with brings with it some nice additions such as:

  • Access to popular movies and TV shows streamed through Netflix.
  • NOOK Comics including the largest collection of Marvel graphic novels – with vivid colors & rich images, the action nearly jumps off the page. Your issues always in perfect condition to enjoy again & again.
  • PagePerfect NOOK Books – a whole new category of NOOK Books carefully crafted to keep the precision and beauty of their stunning print versions. Zoom in on pictures, and fluidly scroll through pages of beautiful cookbooks, art books, and more.
  • Over 100 enhancements, including reading NOOK Books in portrait and landscape modes, direct look-up of words in the built-in dictionary, increased font size selection, and more.

While originally we thought the Netflix app was going to be a Nook Tablet only app, it’s nice to see that  B&N isn’t forcing customers to upgrade to the latest and greatest just for a new app. The update can be down manually or through the system update menu on the Nook itself. As always, we suggest plugging your Nook into an AC outlet before updating.
