Nook Color to be updated, says Barnes and Noble

Nook-color We've done a fair amount of coverage on using the Nook Color as an Android tablet. This is because the device has such a great design and screen for that job. At first, it was designed as a simple e-reader but now, things may be officially changing.

As soon as people started hacking the Nook for more Android tablet-style computing, Barnes & Noble, the manufacturer of the Nook-branded e-reader line, decided it was high time to up the ante on what the device offered users by way of an upcoming software update.

The only app that is specifically mentioned in the company's plans is email, though I'm sure B&N realizes that in order to keep the tablet competitive, a selection of games and apps for productivity should also be included in the update. 

Hopefully, Barnes & Noble will be able to integrate the incredible amount of e-books that currently available to users of the Nook while still offering a fresh, new way to enjoy them and the other great things about the internet, like video content and games.
