It's the same with books from Fictionwise.
Actually, I was referring to eReader the program (stupid marketing people!). When B&N refers to the "Ability to read your eBooks on multiple devices: iPhone™, iPod touch®, BlackBerry®, PC, Mac OS®***" and that "*** Devices other than nook™ require download of free B&N eReader software", I'm assuming it's not going to be a new version of the eReader program. Since my currently installation of the eReader program can access, and do OTA downloads from, my Fictionwise bookshelf, adding access to the nook bookshelf/account strikes me as a no-brainer.
