The Nook Touch from Barnes & Noble, ordinarily is an e-book reader with a 6″ E Ink display complete with touchscreen capability. However, that would be its day job, and when night falls, you can start playing the Batman theme (na na na na na…). Of course, a hack is required to change the way the Nook Touch works, as the standard E Ink display (especially a black and white one) is meant for reading mostly, handling just text and images while its slow screen refresh rates will definitely limit the kinds of games and videos which you are able to play back. With this hack, the Nook Touch has been injected with a healthy dose of speed to increase the screen refresh rate, eventually enabling it to handle video playback. Running on a modified version of Google’s Android operating system, the rooted Nook Touch can now run some Android apps such as a video player. Of course, the video quality is not up to snuff, but at least you know the Nook Touch is capable of more than just displaying an electronic tome.
