thats pretty cool to be honest
Even includes a overclocking tool and has dual boot on the card so you can boot as a nook or android. The nook doesn't have a dual core CPU but it is not a slouch either it is the same CPU use in the Motorola Droid and does 925 +
Isn't android to be open source?
Yes it is
Then I'm trying to understand, how come they can't just host the files needed and place on an existing micro SD?
That not what they did at all. This is a highly modded version of Gingerbread with a fast SD card that is partioned 4 times and is programed to dual boot. This is not just a generic version it modded all over the place for the Nook. It has touch screen mods and driver mods in addition to what I have mentioned. Remember the best the Nook has is a very limited version of Froyo.
Ok?? Is this a modding service or are they actually selling sd cards that include the software?
Google it and read the reviews. They took the open source Gingerbread and modded it to run from a high speed SD card and modded the program to work right with the Nook. They added all kinds of tweaks, added the market and a bunch of other custom options just for the Nook. Basically they developed a custom os for the Nook using open source Gingerbread. They did what Barnes and Nobles should have done. They also add present and future support.
Oh I gotcha. Sorry I'm on my Droid currently and its not being so friendly. LOL
I've got myself a HTC HD2 running android 2.3, can i join?
Can't wait until ICS comes out so i can throw it at my phone.
what they are doing is selling their own modified version of an OS on specific SD cards fast enough to run said OS, specifically for the one device.
personally, i think thats awesome.
I agree and it does not void your warranty. It also comes with about 20 preinstalled apps which are very usefully. It is really done well.
currently converting a HTC Touch HD from windows 6.1!!!!! to android lol
this should be fun.
Improvement is always fun
What is that Don? Are you flashing?
scroll up three posts
been flashing all my android devices ive had so far lol
HTC Desire, Sony Ericsson Arc S, Samsung Galaxy Tab, and this HTC Touch HD, and soon my Sensation XE i think
i am actually thinking of rooting my droid x2 if ics comes out and will run on it.
I did some major updating yesterday, flashed a new HBOOT and updated from Oxygen 2.1.3 to 2.3.1 without having to wipe anything (yet)
What is a pentile screen? People are criticizing that the Google Nexus will be pentile so the screen will be worse than the SGS2
Samsung now has 2 different AMOLED displays for their high-end phones. Super AMOLED and Super AMOLED Plus. The former is a pentile display, with 8 sub-pixels per pixel group, while the latter has 12 per. This puts a 720P Pentile display on par with the iPhone Retina display's number of sub-pixels.
Advantages of pentile are that it's brighter, more vivid, and consumes less power. The disadvantage is the visible sub-pixels and what some call "untrue" resolution.
I'm waiting to see it in person, but I think the fact that they didn't put their highest end display in the flagship ICS phone is going to sway me towards the HTC Vigor/Rezound.
I'm reluctant to go HTC or others, as AMOLED does look much better than IPS. What do you think of IPS vs AMOLED? Are there any other types?
is the vivider part of pentile make a big difference or not really? I'm thinking it doesn't make much of a difference since it is already AMOLED.
I'm not sure which phone I'm going to get lol, so many choices
Well I finally switched over to MIUI and holy f'ing crap it's a million times better than Darky's ROM. So incredibly polished. So, for anyone thinking they would like a new ROM, I highly recommend it.
Indeed, I've been using it on my Desire for a few months now. Really good ROM with weekly updates
