The nook color is being sold at a subsidized price (like the kindle) due to B&N expecting to make up the difference on e-book sales. But it is an android device, it has been rooted, and GPU acceleration of the honeycomb gui on it has just been demonstrated. It's 45nm OMAP3621 runs at 800mhz stock but we know it can probably overclock to 1.2ghz. Given this it seems like there is a possibility for a screaming deal here... Though I'm not sure if it's legal I believe it is as rooting is legal and you don't have to sign a contract to buy a nook.
Anyone want to be the guinea pig?
