B&N Nook Color e-reader gets taste of Android Honeycomb

You don’t need to spend $800 to get your hands on a shiny new Honeycomb tablet. Indeed, you can go nuts with some Google Android 3.0 Honeycomb love by way of the Barnes & Noble Nook Color e-reader. The ROM is now available for download.

Granted, the Nook Color is not going to be anywhere near as powerful as something like the Motorola XOOM, but it also comes at a fraction of the price. And yes, it’s a real Android tablet in there.

The Honeycomb SDK preview for the Nook Color is already out and about, giving you access to graphics acceleration, accelerometer, wireless, touchscreen, buttons, and sleep/wake. You can get more deets from the folks at XDA-Dev, as usual.

    The Nook Color is the best device I’ve seen in a long time. It is an e-reader for books. color mags w/pics, newspapers, mp3 player, internet browser, and I’m able to play games, watch movies (excellent quality I might add), view Microsoft Office documents, and it has WiFi, all for $249.00.
