Nook Tablet gets Android 4.2 by way of an unofficial CM10.1 release

The Nook Tablet is no stranger to CyanogenMod. In the past we have seen builds for the tablet, and as of today we have word of an unofficial CM10.1 build for the Nook.

Future Barnes & Noble Nooks coming with NFC

So, what's the one feature missing from Barnes & Noble's Nook hardware? If you said "Ice Cream Sandwich", you're... well you're right, but not in this context. If you said "a camera for web chat".... well you're probably right there too. But for a retail-focused company like Barnes & Noble, one of the things they're missing is NFC. According to a Forbes interview with B&N CEO William Lynch, they won't be missing it for long.

Microsoft pays $300m for a stake in Barnes & Noble’s ebooks

Business makes some strange bedfellows, and somewhere in the patent suit that Microsoft lobbed at Barnes & Noble a corporate romance bloomed. Now the Redmond software giant has invested a whopping $300 million into the bookseller's newly formed digital and college division, which will almost certainly take over the growing Nook e-reader business. Microsoft will own 17.6% of the unnamed subsidiary, with Barnes & Noble owning the other 82.4% (virtual value: $1.4 billion).

Nook e-readers and tablets may be coming to the UK soon

The Barnes & Noble Nook line of e-readers and its more media-friendly Nook Color and Nook Tablet entries have gained a lot of fans here in the US, but in international markets they're basically a no-show. That may be coming to an end soon: a Nook developer workshop will be held on March 19th in London, reports E-Book Magazine. That's definitely an indication that Barnes & Noble is interested in the UK market, where its competitor Amazon has had basically free rein for the last few years.

Nook Tablet gets an early CM9 port, despite Gingerbread kernel

While the original Nook Color was (and is!) a robust platform for aftermarket hacking, Barnes & Noble's decision to make the upgraded Nook Tablet with a locked bootloader has caused some headaches. The Nook Color has had CyanogenMod 9 (Ice Cream Sandwich) for months already, but it's taken until now for some industrious XDA developers to get it running on the Nook Tablet. Even so, it's still operating off of the stick Gingerbread 2.3 kernel, thanks to the aforementioned bootloader lock.
