W00t! Nook Color rooted to turn into cheap Android tablet
Developers of the XDA forum managed to run Angry Birds on the Nook Color as well as the Launcher Pro app. But Angry Birds and the Launcher Pro are far from being the only apps you can install – after the rooting you can run many other apps as well. Check out the video below for a demonstration of how some apps like Google Earth run on the rooted device. It's a bit sluggish, but at a price tag of $250 we would deal with that. And if you thought to get the Nook Color as a gift - hurry up, it seems they will not last long.

Pay really close attention to the line at the very top of the page of the link for the process. There is a problem with doing this on some new firmware, and you may brick your nook or be unable to revert to an earlier version.

actually, that note at the top of the page refers to the original nook, not the nook color.
