Developers welcome to submit apps optimized for Nook Color

Barnes & Noble has already promised that a "major" update for the Nook Color is on the way. Apparently some new mobile apps optimized for the e-book reader are as well.

Barnes & Noble has already promised that a "major" update for the Nook Color is on the way. Apparently some new mobile apps optimized for the e-book reader are as well.

The Nook Color has been heralded by some as one of the better Android-based tablets available. After all, it's possible to load up Honeycomb on the 7-inch slate already, although that's not exactly official nor should it be attempted by amateurs.

Now that mobile apps custom built for the Nook Color are on the horizon, things are looking good for Barnes & Noble's premier e-reader. Today, B&N introduced some new tools and services for developers to get them on their way, and it is free to participate in the Nook Developer Program. The door is open for submissions now too. Developers who submit paid apps will receive 70% of the profits from purchases.

No word on when Nook Color owners will see the fruits of these efforts, but it will likely be around the time we see that big firmware upgrade with Adobe Flash support included.
