Barnes & Noble Nook: Firmware upgradeA Barnes & Noble representative highlights the new offerings coming to the Nook e-book reader as of its April 2010 firmware upgrade.
>> Well, we've just launched this great new feature called Read in Store. And when you're in store, you can access this fast and free WiFi in Barnes & Noble stores. And you can now shop, and when you search for a book, we're going to have many eBooks that are available to read and complete contents of the book for up to an hour each day. So we found a book that's available here we wanted to read -- the Star Wars Guide is a sample. And you can see that the option here is to buy it, to get a free sample, as we have with all of our eBooks, as well as to read in the store. And so we're going to hit Back button. And it gives us a short message, that says you have access to this for the next hour. We have content that will be available from more than 200 publishers, including all the majors. And so we're just going to page forward. We're actually in the complete contents of this Star Wars Guide. And we're just going to page through. We could also go to any chapter, read the beginning, read the end, whatever we would like. And it's all at our fingertips to enjoy for the next hour.
