We know that people love hacking the NOOKcolor, but usually it’s been made to run Android and its custom ROMs. Well the folks over at Nomovok decided to take it a step further and replace the operating system – with MeeGo. After a week of development, they’ve managed to come up with a working, stable port of the operating system on the reader, and it sure looks sweet. All the basic functionality is present, but Bluetooth and the gravity sensor needs some more work done.
Judging from the video demonstration, MeeGo on the NOOKcolor looks pretty impressive, running smoothly along with a cool-looking sidebar for multi-tasking on the device. Hit the break to check out a video of it in action thanks to the folks at MeeGo Experts:
