You might initially be thinking “why would I want to root an ebook reader?” but a quick glance at the pieces of the puzzle give every indication. Android 1.5 on a MicroSD card, AT&T 3G modem, Wi-Fi, capacitive touchscreen, e-Ink display and the ability to do “everything a rooted Android phone can do.”

Sounds delicious to me and although it doesn’t LOOK all that sexy undressed:

And the folks at NookDevs have done the dirty work and rooted the Nook. We would love to see how they put their hard work to good use in some hands on video. Bring it on!
