The OTA update next month will bring web browsing capabilities to Barnes and Noble's entry level device for the first time. By adding to the functionality of the eReader, Barnes and Noble turns the Simple Touch into a low priced tablet that even those older non-tech users can employ. The update starts June 1st according to the memo, and includes a refreshed store, bug fixes and system improvements. The memo also says that customers may need assistance in-store.

Imagine reading Fifty Shades of Grey when suddenly you had the urge to watch porn, but in a black and white screen.

It's an e-reader; it's not designed for videos.

Kindle E-readers has had a simple browser for years. In fact it had free 3G.

The first version of the Nook had a simple browser (it was hidden) and 3G as well.
If you recall, that Nook was released in November 2009.
