Barnes & Noble Nook Gets Rooted


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:


… the potential has us pretty hot and bothered.


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!

I'm an Android and Tech lover, but first and foremost I consider myself a creative thinker and entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for ideas of all sizes. I'm a sports lover who cheers for the Orange (College), Ravens (NFL), (Orioles), and Yankees (long story). I live in Baltimore and wear it on my sleeve, with an Under Armour logo. I also love traveling... where do you want to go?
