It appears the crafty guys at NookDevs have done a teardown of the Barnes & Noble Nook eReader device and have “rooted” the device. They’ve discovered that the entire operating system of the Nook is on a little MicroSD card found inside the device (noted in the photo below as “microSD filesystem”!
This should open up some interesting “hacking” of the pseudo-Android eBook Reader – something I’ll be following very closely.

With the Android OS powering this e-Reader I imagine there are plenty of interesting things that could be added to the Nook – especially with WiFi capability and a Micro-SD slot. I can’t wait to see what they are able to do with the Nook.
