Android 3.0 Honeycomb download comes to Nook Color

It's not exactly official, but if you want to step up the operating system on your Nook Color, an Android 3.0 download is now available.

Produced by a developer known only by the code name "Deeper-blue," a port of the Honeycomb SDK is available to download, install and run off an SD card. Users should be able to make full use of the touch screen, buttons, Wi-Fi, accelerometer and other functions with the new OS.

Android Central has a how-to guide on how to do this, and the actual SD image can be downloaded here. Again, this is only at your own risk as it's not an official release from Barnes & Noble.
