NookColor To Get Android Market And Flash Support In April

Here is a biggie for the NookColor owners! NookColor will get official Android Market support which means users can access all the millions of Android Apps that are inaccessible to NookColor till now. This should be as a great gift from the Barnes & Nobles to the Nook Color users.

Till date, the only method of getting access to Android Market Apps is to root NookColor and then install Android Market in it. This is not a simple method and most of the newbies to android wouldn’t like to get their hands dirty.


According to HSN, the official firmware update is expected to be rolled out in April and comes leaked as a “Sneak Peek update! The updates will be automatically available if your device is connected to internet via Wi-Fi. Below are details of the update:

  • HSN will have the “sneak peek” of the new NOOK Color updates, which launches in April
