NOOKcolor Receives Android 3.0 Honeycomb

January 28, 2011

Ever since we first laid eyes upon NOOKcolor, we knew it'd perform well for the world - once it was rooted, of course. That was a few weeks ago. A couple days ago, an SDK of Android 3.0 Honeycomb was released. Today Honeycomb has been ported to NOOKcolor. What a wonderful system we've got here.

The developer who did this awesome task to project says that he plans on working on graphics acceleration next, to improve performance over the weekend so that Motorola XOOM, the tablet that supposed to be the ship that sails on winds of Honeycombs, might appear to be an ancient artifact by the time it's released. Sounds great!

    IMO, processor powering NOOKcolor is nowhere near powerful enough to give users an enjoyable experience.

        My highest score running rooted 2.1 @ 1.1ghz is 1210. Some folks running froyo have broken 1400… not bad for an ereader, eh?
