NOOKcolor to receive software update this April

25 Mar

The Home Shopping Network website did suggest that the NOOKcolor e-book reader is going to receive a major software update this coming April, and while the product description lacks an explanation on what will be included within the update, we do know that it was mentioned that Adobe Flash will be supported – so with the powers of inference that are in our hands, this might mean an operating system update that will finally hit Android 2.2 Froyo (or higher, that would be better). At the present moment however, the NOOKcolor tech gadgets will ship with Android 2.1 Eclair, and that doesn’t do Flash at all. The Home Shopping Network also has their customers at the top of their priority list, making it available to them first. Does this mean sales of the NOOKcolor will come to a standstill between now and April?
