The main (and pretty much only) substantial nook complaint we've seen has been about the reader's painfully sluggish speed. Obviously slow load time is something no user is likely to tolerate long from an e-reader. After all, a real damned book doesn't have any lag, unless you cut your finger open on the page and have to stop to go find a band-aid. Barnes & Noble just sent out their first update (via Android and Me) for the nook. Update 1.1.0 is focused around fixing bugs and reparing performance issues. Page turning and formatting of downloaded books has been improved, start-up time for my library, the daily, and setting has also been improved. The Reading Now option will now take the customer directly to the last page read without reformatting. The status bar will now display the correct time, and the B&N in-store content and promotions roll-out is now fully supported. Basically, your nook should now be less glitchy and load things up much faster. If you're one of the lucky few with a nook, be sure to let us know how well the update works. Is the reader fast enough to pass muster now? Or are there still plenty of kinks to iron out?
