B&N NOOK for Android Hits v2.4

While the original NOOK eReader has just received a pretty big update of its own, Barnes & Noble wasn't going to let their Android version of their popular eReader application miss its own update. So thankfully, the company has officially pulled the curtain off the latest update for the NOOK for Android eReader software. It's available now, and the software version is 2.4.

Pandigital’s 9-inch Novel ereader tablet goes on sale

Pandigital's new, black Novel ereader tablet has gone up for sale at QVC, though it's more expensive than originally expected. The company first said the Novel - which has a 9-inch color LCD touchscreen - would be $199.99, but the retailer is listing it for $213.80. That gets you WiFi b/g, 2GB of onboard storage and a 4GB microSD card, as well as a leatherette case. No sign of which Android OS version the tablet is running, however, nor what CPU is inside.

Major November Update on the way for Nook

Barnes & Noble ladies and gentlemen get your digital page turning fingers out and strap on your sitting shoes, because there's going to be some excellent additions to your cherished NOOK device come November 2010. Items requested by adamant readers such as improved search, customized organization of your Barnes & Noble Library, and password protection. Then there's the fun stuff like quicker page turning, the ability to access your NOOK books across multiple devices (like your phone, iPad, etc.,) with automatic updates to each. That means that if you want to read a couple pages on the bus and all you've got is your phone with a NOOK app, once you get home to read some more on your main Nook device, you're good to go, two pages deeper!

Pocketbook 701 tablet/ereader clears FCC; Froyo in December

Pocketbook's 701 Android tablet/ereader has cleared the FCC, and now the company has shared a few details on what differentiates it from the Pandigital Novel.  According to a Russian spokesperson for Pocketbook, the PB701 will be open to installing third-party apps (there's a suggestion of Android Market support, but that could be poorly translated) and will run Android 2.0 at launch with a 2.2 Froyo update pencilled in for December 2010. Meanwhile there's also video and audio support, unlike on the Pandigital Novel.  Most significantly, however, Pocketbook says that the software has been updated for the IQ, which should hopefully address some of the usability issues that plagued the early Novel units.
