Image Gallery: Hands-on with the Barnes & Noble Nook 1.3 firmware update

Summary: Barnes & Noble was quick to roll out an update when the Nook was first released last Fall. This current update continues to improve a great ebook reader device with games, a web browser, in-store reading support, and overall bug fixes and improvements. You can now browse when connected to a WiFi network and you don't have another device around.

  • You are not allowed to change the font size or type in books you read in the store.

  • The font size for in store reading is a bit larger than I would like, but you can't really complain when you get to read the book for free.
