Following Barnes & Noble's admirable decision to bring Google Play access to its Nook e-readers, we are hearing reports that the company will soon add a web browser and email feature to its Simple Touch e-readers, namely, the Nook Simple Touch and Simple Touch with GlowLight.
Citing a source close to the matter, TechCrunch is reporting that the new features will be made available via a software update. The update is said to be version 1.5.0 which will allow the e-readers to browse the web, as well as to send and receive email messages. Meanwhile, Barnes & Noble has yet to confirm the report.
