Barnes & Noble has a critical announcement for some Nook owners — support for the original device is ending.

The retailer emailed owners of first-edition Nooks to break the news offer them a discount on buying either a replacement Nook ereader or Android tablet.

On June 29, you won’t be able to purchase new content, register with a BN.com account, or sign in using a Nook account on the first-edition Nook, according to the email, which was posted at The Digital Reader.

It emphasized that previously purchased content will still be available by using the Nook Reading Apps on mobile and tablet devices.

The first-edition Nook was released in October 2009, received a few updates in 2010, and was then replaced by the Nook Color and Nook Touch (both Android devices).
