NOOKcolor Overclocked to 1.1GHz


The NOOKcolor has quickly gotten a reputation for being an easily hackable and modifiable eReader-turned-tablet. After custom ROMs, kernels, bluetooth hacks, and more, XDA has done it again – this time, overclocking the thing to 1.1GHz. (It had previously seen a 950MHz overclock.) Go ahead and try it for yourself and let us know how much of an impact it has on the NOOKcolor’s performance. I may even reconsider purchasing one if the performance gains are attractive enough.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Wooo! The hacks and awesome updates keep rolling in for the B&N Nook Color.

    Seriously, this totally worth the $250 entry fee, people. If you want a really nice entry level Android tablet, buy this.

  2. Let’s see some quadrant scores guys!

  3. It’s great that it is so overclockable… but how does this effect real world battery life?

  4. I wonder if, given all this, it is a better buy than other $250-and-below tablets out there… It seems that with XDA already out so far ahead on it than other tablets, it’s probably the way to go for entry level, and I’m guessing there will be a Honeycomb ROM for it before most other tabs. I might have to grab one…

  5. Quadrant score on mine running the 1.1ghz kernel is 1225. Battery life impact is minimal as well. Very snappy and very satisfied with my investment on this little monster. Buying a few books at B&N just as a way of saying thanks for this awesome gift. My iPad is getting a lot more shelf time.
