A hacker going by the username of @deeper-blue has posted photos and video (embedded below) of  Android 3.0 Honeycomb running on a Nook Color. Initially, Android booted, but no control was available.

While we were certain Android Honeycomb would make its way on to the Samsung Galaxy Tab before any other existing Android tablet, the honors went to the Barnes & Noble Nook Color, an e-Reader.

Luckily, Google will be going on to release Android ‘Honeycomb‘ 3.0 with devices like the Motorola XOOM which current Android owners crossing their fingers that the update will be released not long after. Owners of the Barnes & Noble Nook Color will be happy to hear that Honeycomb has been ported to the device thats to this publicly available SDK.

First of all it was overclocked to 950MHz and then one of the XDA developers used the code and tweaked it to run at 1.1GHz in a stable manner. Now we are hearing reports of something equally as crazy, we hear that there is a NOOK Color running on Android’s Honeycomb OS. Those guys at XDA never cease to amaze me, talk about getting the most out of your device!
