Android Honeycomb Playing Nice on Nook Color: Video

So the Google Guys are holding an Android 3.0 Honeycomb event on Wednesday the 2nd of February where the mobile space should learn all about the tablet specific operating system. However that hasn’t seemed to stop the OS form being ported to another device.

According to an article over on Tech Gadgets, and by way of Engadget, those very clever guys over at XDA-developers have now managed to port Android 3.0 Honeycomb over to the Nook color tablet.

And of course they have some video footage of Android 3.0 Honeycomb playing nice on the Barnes & Noble Nook Color, which comes our way courtesy of YouTube user Deepbluer, and lasts just over the two-minute mark.

Deepbluer says that the graphics acceleration is “more or less” working, and pretty much everything else isn’t working yet, but no doubt they will get there eventually and have Android Honeycomb playing smooth as silk on the Nook.

So all you need do is head on down, mash that play button and check out Android 3.0 Honeycomb on the Nook Color, and feel free to let us know what you think by posting us a comment.

    Looks very promising. My concern is Barnes & Noble going to have an OTA update once the Android OS is stable for the Nook Color? Unfortunately I'm not a techie so have no clue as on how to port Android to my Nook Color once it is stable. Any Ideas?

      Do a quick google search for instructions on how to install Android Honeycomb 3.0 on Nook Color. I find that the easiest to follow are the instructions posted on Android Central's website so you may want include Android Central in your search. Overall, besides getting the android market to function on it, it is a realitively easy process to complete even for those with no tech experience whatsoever. Also, Android Central has posted an updated version of 3.0 that I have not seen elsewhere yet; it includes sound and fixes a few other features that the first 3.0 download lacked.

    I was confused about how to do it even with the simple instruction. I took to my local B & N. The woman did it for me using her laptop. While not an Ipad, I can now sit on the couch with my husband and his Ipad and do most of the same things. Surf, email, youtube, some apps. I am very happy with this product and the support I get for the brick and motar store.
