Nook Color hacked to run MeeGo Linux

Sometimes I wonder if anyone actually reads books on their Nook Color. We’ve already seen hacks that allow the Nook Color to run more full fledged versions of Android, but this time a company that specializes on open source software has crammed MeeGo Linux on the thing and put it on display at the Computex show. It’s a work in progress and currently lacks things like Bluetooth and g-sensor, but otherwise it runs pretty well. It’s amazing to see what people can make work, but as the price of “proper” Android tablets is falling I have to wonder how long the $249 Nook Color will survive on its price alone.

  • I’d like to try that!

  • Ha, ha. That’s probably true about people probably not reading on this Nook. :) I only hear about it when it’s a new hack or something like that.
