The
Nook Color


has become one of most popular Android devices due to its low price tag and ability to be hacked. Barnes and Noble announced today that there will be a major firmware update in April that will bring increased functionality to the device, including apps.

No word yet on whether users will be able to experience the entire Android Market, but B&N announced some of the titles that will be made available, including Angry Birds, Drawing Pad, Lonely Planet Phrasebooks, Tikatok and Wine PhD. There will also be an email app. This has to be great news for Nook customers who have been anxiously awaiting the update that was rumored last year (and who have not flashed ROMS).

B&N also announced the addition of more quality content to the Nook Color that includes The Economist, Travel and Leisure and ESPN the Magazine. Aside from these titles, B&N is partnering with Nikelodeon to bring exclusive children's content with the titles Spongebob Squarepants, Dora the Explorer and Diego.

These announcements are all great news for Nook Color fans who are watching their tablet/e-reader continue to improve. What remains to be seen is whether or not the April update will provide enough to sway those who have flashed custom ROMS to revert to stock. See the full press releases after the break.
