Barnes & Noble eReader may run Android

The folks at Gizmodo are saying that the upcoming eReader from Barnes & Noble will run Android. If that’s true, I’ll be thrilled. As a ‘power user’ at minimum, I always want my electronics devices to be more than just appliances. I want them to be computers, that can be modified and updated and hacked. Having the OS be Android will open up the possibilities for the eReader to have a long and useful life that doesn’t absolutely depend on just being an eReader. Kudos B&N. This will also put Android to the test as more that just a cell phone OS.
