A CNET report indicates that hacks installed on microSD memory cards designed for use on the Nook Color Android has recently become available on eBay. The Nook Color Android hacks are priced at $60 for the 4GB microSD memory cards. Once these cards are installed on the microSD slot of the Nook Color Android, users will be able to override the firmware on the Nook Color Android to allow it to support a number of Android apps.
These Nook Color Android hacks are popular among Android fans who are short in cash to purchase the genuine Android tablets since the Nook Color Android costs only $250 while Android tablets such as the Motorola Xoom is priced at $800.
Will Shanklin indicated his disappointment with the recent developments as he urged users to refrain from purchasing the hacks on the microSD memory cards which were designed for use on the Nook Color Android. An ordinary 4GB microSD memory card is normally priced at $10 at Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN) while the 8GB version has a price tag of $16.
According to the listed seller, Android Guy, his products were better than the other available products since it offers a detailed procedure in utilizing the hacks on the microSD memory cards.
However a good number of experts have indicated that utilizing a hack from a microSD memory card is for beginners since running it from an internal memory gives better performance for the device including the Nook Color Android.
Even with these recent developments, the report further stated that the number of rooting instances may involve a small percentage of Nook Color Android owners. If not Barnes & Noble (NYSE:BKS) may actively fight against it. The report concluded that the Nook Color Android hacks offered on eBay were rip-offs according to the Android Police.
