As promised in April, owners of Barnes & Noble's Nook devices with subscriptions to The New York Times will be able to make use of those deals directly on their e-book readers.

That goes for all Nook-branded devices, including the new Nook that was unveiled in May as well as the Nook Color.

Owners of the Nook Color will likely have a better time when accessing the NYTimes.com on the browser window. That will certainly make use of the latest firmware update to Android 2.2 and addition of Adobe Flash, which enables support for interactive graphics, slideshows and more.

Similarly, Amazon Kindle owners can also now make use of their NYT subscriptions on their own e-book readers. Although it is currently noted on Amazon that access is not available yet when using one of the Kindle Reader Apps for other devices (i.e. tablets and smartphones).

To reiterate, the only requirement for unlimited access without any additional fees on the part of Barnes & Noble or Amazon to NYT content depends on the user's subscription. Don't forget that The Gray Lady is now behind a pay wall.

NYT digital subscription rates vary, but the standard option for these devices would be the "NYTimes.com + Tablet App," which runs for $5 per week, or $20 per month.
