Cyanogen Mod now running on 500k Android devices

One of the developers with the open source Android firmware project tweeted the news yesterday. According to the project's stats page there are now 504, 372 Android devices running CM7, with not quite 4 thousand new ones since yesterday.

CyanogenMod is a customized aftermarket firmware for Android devices (around a couple dozen are now supported, including the NookColor).The current version is based on Android 2.3.3 and it includes a lot of features not found in some (most?) official firmwares. It's intended to increase performance and reliability over the stock firmwares released by vendors and carriers such as Google, T-Mobile, HTC, etc.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
