There is great news for all NOOK Color owners! Boingo Wireless has now partnered up with Barnes & Noble to form Boingo’s first e-reader partnership! This means reading and browsing anywhere on the NOOK color has become more of a reality! Boingo’s Wi-Fi app will allow NOOK Color customers access to more than 325,000 Wi-Fi hotspots around the world with a single click. For more information about Boingo’s services, check out my previous post! See below for some of the features for the NOOK color below.
“The Boingo Wi-Fi app enables access to more than 325,000 Wi-Fi hotspots around the world with a single click. One Boingo account, with a low monthly cost, gives customers direct access to over 125 networks with the same login.
“Barnes & Noble’s NOOK Color Reader’s Tablet™ is a great example of a new wave of devices that can use Wi-Fi networks to provide a richer and more interactive experience to customers,” said Colby Goff, senior vice president of strategy and business development. “Whether someone is browsing the NOOK Bookstore for her next great read or actively surfing the web, NOOK Color with a Boingo Wi-Fi account is a great combination.”
NOOK Color, which has access to one of the world’s largest collections of digital content, has built-in Wi-Fi and provides the most-requested tablet features from shopping for apps, books, magazines, newspapers and kids’ books to email connectivity and surfing the web. NOOK Color customers can use the Wi-Fi connection to share books and post favorite lines to Twitter or Facebook using the NOOK Friends™ feature.“
This is totally awesome for every gal who loves to read and browse whenever the mood strikes. It’s also great for students to keep up on their reading in between classes or daily commute. I like how Boingo has integrated their service for multiple devices under one account- very nice! Check it out for your Nook Color today- The free app is now available through the Barnes & Noble NOOK Bookstore from your NOOK Color. Let us know how you like it!
