February 1, 2011

You've seen Honeycomb running on the NOOKcolor in photos and on video; now you can try it yourself. xda-developers has released a Honeycomb ROM for the Barnes & Noble ereader tablet, based on the official Google emulator and various other sources.

So far, graphics acceleration, wireless, the touchscreen, buttons and accelerometer all work, but sound and DSP (including hardware video decoding) are still works-in-progress. Nonetheless, this is a handy way to get a jump on Google's official Honeycomb reveal tomorrow if you've got a NOOKcolor to hand; if you haven't, head over to our Honeycomb deep dive instead.

[Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]

Update: Our old friend Steve Troughton-Smith has put together a walkthrough video:
