Barnes and Noble Nook gets speed, sync in November

Barnes & Noble today promised a major Nook update that would give the e-reader an update just before it goes into the holidays. The 1.5 patch should "dramatically increase" the page turn speed and other performance of the Android-based readers. Sync has also been modernized and should fully remember book positions across the Android, computer and iPad/iPhone apps as long as they have Internet connections.

Owners will get the option of password-locking the device as well as better search and a means of organizing the Barnes & Noble books on the e-paper device. The bookseller plans to have 1.5 on devices in late November and will push out both direct Wi-Fi updates as well as a manual upgrade from a computer.
