B&N Nook 'rooted,' is running Android 1.5 The highly anticipated e-reader, the Barnes & Noble Nook, has been torn apart and "rooted" by the boys over at NookDevs and the process as well as the specs are now online.
Specs: (via QP)

* Samsung S3C6410 Processor
* Synaptics TM169 Touchscreen controller
* Internal 2GB Sandisk microSD card for internal storage

The e-reader is also using a modified Android 1.5 firmware, and being rooted it seems just a matter of time until the Nook is given added functionality.

Interesting... Not many advantage yet, but being able to suppress auto updates, it's pretty good IMO.
