I think the only ones with an insight such as this may be prohibited from releasing the info ahead of schedule. As for speculation, with all the advertising I've seen for the HD+ (and all the competition), I firmly believe we'll have our next update within the next week, week and a half. I mean, really, why can't I watch my UV movie from my library! That should've been fixed immediately. I know I could have bought another, more fully functional tablet and I know this isn't a primary use for this device. I've also heard there's going to be something in the update to increase sound quality or volume. Of course, I don't have an inside track so if I'm wrong, remember I'm just speculating.
I really hope whenever it does come out, the shelf problem is fixed. Also it would be nice if the apps B&N is currently selling specifically for the HD, would actually work and not come up with an error message. I know a lot of people are also waiting on the ultraviolet option. They made a beautiful device but it is seriously lacking and glitchy. I'm really looking forward to the next update and hope to see some serious improvement. I've never regretted upgrading to the newest Nook generation before, until now. I miss my nook color.
on one of the other threads last week someone mentioned that the next update was already being worked on.
So I suspect it should be out by end of year.
They were very quick to release the 2.0.1 through 2.0.4 updates. So the next one should be soon.
No insight on when, I have been checking daily and hope its soon. Like others, frustrated with the UV not working. Still glad I got the HD+ though and hopefully they will address some of the issues on next update. I realized the dolphin browser seems to work much better than native browser that came with it.
2.0.5 just released but don't get too excited, most of my movies now say unsupported so didnt help that part.
Thinks I noticed:
1) Most, but not all of my UV movies are doubled in the list.
2) For each doubled movie one seems to work and the other doesn't.
