Nook Color Rooting To Make It A DIY 7-inch Android Tablet

Have you got a Nook Color? Want to use it as a tablet as well as a color LCD reader? Well you now thanks to nookDevs and a bit of Android rooting action.

Nook Color Rooted

With a 800MHz ARM chip powering a modified Android ROM, it was fairly obvious from the get-go that the Color could make for a decent, cheap, DIY tablet, and now that dream has been realized.
