Android & tech-hacking?
I pre-ordered a Nook.
My bet is on Android, I am thinking (a big guess and bet on my part) that with all the SDK for Android and the tech-hackers that someone will bust that OS wide open and start tinkering.
I would not be surprised to see some apps start to pop up (wi-fi usage, basic apps, mp3 hacks, even a web-browser?)
No doubt the Nook looks to be a nice gadget and combined with a pseudo-open source OS it could turn into a little more than what it is.
Sure it handles PDFs probably as well as any other eReader.
It handles EPUB, etc.
The question for me is - does Android turn it into something special?
It's a bet and I don't know if it will pay off - but I made the bet.

I am thinking that pretty soon they will have a program that will strip DRM and convert books right on the reader itself.

It would be nice if we can hack it to display Thai ebook.
Is it technicallly possible?
