If the Nook tablet was to be upgraded with an newer operating system android ics or jellybean. This would be a great advancement over the current nook tablet and its competition. I have vision of a new user interface for nook tablet. There should be more than three homepages, The notification bar that has the virtual softkeys needs a better appearance. There needs to be a way for users to lock the icons on the homescreen so that they can utilize the space on the screen. Also the transitions between the home screens are kind of laggy.The navigation menu could have the multitasking scroll of apps above it, instead of just a dark overlap. There could be nook widgets that tell you what new books are available, new apps, also a free Friday widget or notification. Also the shortcuts on the bottom of the home screen could be more creative and the icons look pixelated. The app menu looks outdated and obsolete. There should be an option for page turn animations like in the nook app.
Something that also should be included is a better lockscreen. The lockscreen should probably have unlock shortcuts or widgets on it. For example, a lockscreens that has a shortcut to the book you were reading, the web browser, the nook shop,my music, my media, nook friends, and the home icon. It would be cool if there was a pulsating circle like the one in jelly bean 4.1, that when you touched it it would turn into a beautiful n logo that you drag to the shortcuts.)
There are some great things that are advantages in the nook tablets user interface. The simplicity of the resizable apps and books. The quick settings menu when you tap the clock. The carousel at the bottom of the screen. The shortcut to your current book.
I hope Barnes & Nobles are developing a nook tablet software update that upgrade the android os, and improves some of the features and problems with the nook, and that it rolls out nicely like the nook colored upgrade, or the htc flyer's upgrade from gingerbread to honeycomb.
Post ideas, I hope the nook developers and programers would brig this to life.
