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.

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

The why is not important as the what. The iPad cannot do it and the Nook Touch can.

Flash was hacked into iOS at least as far back as 2010, Nate. Your zealotry is blinding you again.

Plus there’s the Skyfire browser and a couple other apps.

Of course it is. Mike was being polite.

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!
