    New Update Coming This Week!

    Not sure if there is truth to this, but still interesting. :) There has been B&N employee rumors before. Usually updates for either device are never on the same date so I have my doubts.

    It'll be nice, if true, as it's what I've been waiting for (Flash). But the comment that the update for the original will be bigger? What could be bigger than the 2.1 to 2.2 update for the NC?

    Read once again, the bigger update is for Nook Classic, not Nook Color

    Well although the info was incorrect for the date of the new update, it in fact is coming sometime in April. What I'm most looking forward to seeing is, since there will be apps, B&N must have designed in a bottom status bar, which is what many NC users running any android operating system are looking forward to.

    HSN is displying a NC with 2.2 on it right now. It is playing flash content. Looks pretty cool.

    Thanks.

    lol what a crock hsn. As I thought, they are running a rooted NC, with angry birds. It's probably 2.1 rooted. They also say they will be fist getting 2.2 next month when if fact all owners will have opportunity to get the update at the same time.

    They also say they're including 100 free BN "classic" ebooks. I'm betting these are public domain classics you can get anywhere for free.

    Any thoughts on if the B&N update in April will include native OS support for Copy/Paste? I seem recall Android 2.2 is when that was included so if this update is based on 2.2 what are the chances of getting better copy/paste support? That would be nice for those of us with a rooted B&N rom.....

    Well don't expect it to be everywhere, it should be better on certain apps. Only Android 2.3 (gingerbread) has system wide copy and paste ability. BUt for the most part many api8 (android 2.2) apps at this point support copy and paste. All the email apps most certain will. And since the operating system will change, it should be the same for rooted and non-rooted alike.
