Nook Touch Running Adobe Flash 9

Nook Touch Running Adobe Flash 9 e-Reading Hardware 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.

    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!
