Barnes & Noble announced and ** RELEASED ** a major free upgrade this morning that turns your Nook from a simple eReader to an Android Tablet PC with its own App Store with dozens of free and reasonably priced productivity apps, games, and fun stuff.
You can either wait for the OTA (Over the Air) upgrade which should automatically download and install over WiFi sometime within the next 7 days, or if you want it now you can download to your PC and side load it (instructions are on the B&N Nook Color web site).
At the amazing price of $249.00 this will kill the Motorola Xoom, BlackBerry Playbook, Samsung Galaxy and dozens of other Android tablets just being released that all start at OVER TWICE THE PRICE OF THE COLOR NOOK!!!
You made the right decision buying a Nook Color and now your patience for waiting for the upgrade is available now!
