Hacked! Honeycomb gets early preview on Nook Color

Although it won't be officially introduced for a few more days, Honeycomb is already up and running on a Nook Color.

Android Honeycomb won't be officially introduced until Google's big event on February 2nd, but it's already been hacked onto a tablet. And who else would be behind the hack other than a member of the XDA Developers Forum?

Member "deeper-blue" has managed to get Android 3.0 running on his Nook Color, as you can see in the below video. The graphics appear to run pretty smoothly, but as he says himself, most other things still need work -- like wireless LAN, accelerometer or even sound.

Still, it's work in progress so it will be a pretty sweet setup once it's complete, and shows just how tablet-friendly Honeycomb really is.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
