In the proud tradition of the CueCat the street is finding its own use for the Nook, adding Facebook, Pandora, and Browser apps to the ereader. Nookdevs have already rooted the Android-powered ebook and programmers have succeeded in installing multiple apps that have been ported to the version of the OS running on the Nook.
What does this mean? Not much, yet. However, it’s fun to watch this thing get torn up and made into something more than the sum of its parts. The images of the hacked Nooks, above, are pretty blurry but there are also screen caps from the “color” portion of the screen that show a formal Facebook app running on the device.
Has anyone nooked up their Nook yet? We’d love to hear your experiences.
