I bet when Barnes & Nobles announced the NOOKcolor e-reader last year you would have never guessed it would be one of the first Android devices to receive a Honeycomb port, but lo and behold someone over at XDA has done it. Now we must preface this by saying this isn’t available for you to up and install on your own NOOKcolor yet, but user deeperblue has a rather dysfunctional build ported on his own device. Touchscreen support was just recently gained, but most other functions simply don’t work.

While we will have to wait for the actual Android 3.0 source code to be released before we see and serious strides in the creation of bootable ROMs of Honeycomb for various devices, this certainly is promising.
