Nook Color now has an official SDK add-on for Android

| December 3, 2010 | Reply

With the recent release of the Barnes & Noble Nook Color we have already seen this device rooted and running an Android OS. There was a laundry list of steps involved in rooting this device but made well worth it for those who have accomplished this.  Now this is still technically just an e-reader, however the Nook Color is becoming more and more like an actual tablet with the latest release of an official SDK add-on for Android SDK.  Check out the Link below to download yours and start cracking into this tablet “e-reader” and let us know what you think.  Are you digging into your Nook Color anytime soon?

Barnes & Noble may still be calling it an e-reader first and foremost, but the Nook Color has now taken one more step into full-fledged tablet territory with the release of an official SDK add-on for the Android SDK. That comes complete with an Android Virtual Device emulator, along with Android Debug Bridge (or ADB) configuration settings, sample code and, of course, plenty of documentation to get you started. Of particular note, that finally includes a complete specifications list, which confirms once more that the device runs on an 800MHz TI OMAP 3621 processor, and is backed up by a POWERVR SGX530 GPU. Hit up the source link below for all the details.
