Nook Touch Running Adobe Flash 9

If you thought it was cool to see the Nook Touch with a fast refresh and then see it play video, you're going to get a kick out of this video.Here's a proof of concept video showing the Nook Touch running Flash 9. It's from the same guy who showed us a video running on the Nook Touch.

The video doesn't show much (it looks like the NT hardware is barely up to the task), but it does stand as a rather odd milestone. The Nook Touch, a $99 ereader, can now do stuff that the $500 iPad cannot. A hacker, working out of his house, has just counted coup on Apple.

Of course, Apple doesn't care, but it's still fun to see a lowly ereader do things that the vaunted iPad cannot. It's an interesting day.

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."

    I think you’re mistaking “cannot do” for “does not WANT to do.”

  2. Flash is dead anyway. So you’ve got a Nook Touch basically doing zombie tech. I’d be more impressed if he provided proof of the mini vMac emulator working on a Nook Touch. Yeah, that’d be zombie tech too — but cool!
