Why do we hack and root Android devices? Because we can. And while it's not exactly the same as rocking a dual-core tablet, the latest Nook -- all six inches of it in black-and-white e-ink -- has been rooted and seen running Angry Birds, of course.
That's possible because while the Nook Touch is an e-reader on its face, it's running Android 2.1 in its heart. And where there's Android, there be hackery going on. This mod comes from JesusFreke in the forum of Das U-Boot (great name!), and hopefully we'll see some easy-to-use instructions in the near future.
