Barnes & Noble are pushing a major update for Nook Simple Touch and Nook Simple Touch with Glowlight devices. The Software version number 1.5.0 will be adding browser and email support to the devices receiving the updates. The update will also improve and add some new features to the  Nook Store.

The updates will be started rolling out starting 1st June but will be limited to 2 devices. The inclusion of browser and email support is a right move as no ebook reader supports both the functions. Kindle has started shipping the devices with browser but it’s still in testing phase and the email client support has not been added yet. This will give an upper hand to Nook on Kindle in the e-reader market.
