The Nook handheld eBook Reader offers WiFi or WiFi+3G

Just when you think the iPad tablet is what you need to read books – well, why not get a dedicated handheld ebook reader that is better for your eyes PLUS offers WiFi and 3G for internet access! And get this – at $100 less than it was on its release date and much less than an Apple iPad tablet!

Yes, 6 months after I purchased my Nook handheld eBook reader they cut the price by $100. Oh well, at least I have it and I haven’t regretted it one day. I am still on the lookout for a nicer case so if you have any suggestions – please let me know!

If you have a Nook, and it’s the original release, it probably is the WiFi version. It is important to upgrade your software version. The current software version is Version 1.4.

The Nook Version 1.4 offers:

1. Extended AT&T Wi-Fi Hotspot support — FREE and seamless connection to AT&T’s entire nationwide Wi-Fi network including restaurants, hotels and additional locations, and wherever you see an AT&T Wi-Fi sign.

2. New extra extra large font size

3. Go-To Page feature allows users to go to a specific page in their eBook

Here’s how I feel about version upgrades for the Nook – I LOVE THEM.

It’s like a whole new world.  Wi-Fi hotspot .

It’s easy to upgrade – just turn the Nook on and let it do all the work. It is pretty automatic. Just ‘Check for new B&N content’ in the My Library area in order to initiate the update and sit back and in less than 5 minutes, its done.

If you want to do it manually, go here:  Software Version 1.4

To upgrade manually follow these steps:

1. Download Version 1.4 here (Software Version 1.4)
2. Connect your Nook to your computer via the USB cable provided. A new ‘drive’ will appear and you should see “USB Mode” image on your Nook’s E Ink screen.
3. Make sure your battery is at 20% or more.
4. Drag and drop the downloaded file into your Nook’s main directory.
5. Eject your Nook from your computer.
6. Your Nook will now install the files itself.
7. Once complete, your Nook will go to the Home Screen

Note – Do not turn your Nook off during this process!

Simple, easy, and a great update for your Nook handheld eBook reader!
