Nook Tablet to receive ICS update, but with a catch

by Gareth Mankoo

The Nook Tablet has been a subject of comparison and talk right from its inception. The comparison part comes from its at-par features with quite a few notable tablets. Now the device sees and breathes a fresh draft of air with an Android Ice Cream Sandwich update in line. And, for those of you with the will for knowledge, there’s the real differentiator in this whole deal. The update may be the unofficial one, made available with the CyanogenMod 9 Alpha 0 update.

Of course, the available features are limited, but you have complete ability to surf the Web, read books, download applications and do a lot more. You have a working Wi-Fi but no hardware video acceleration.
