With wild (and unconfirmed) rumors swirling about the future of rooting on the Nook Color, those who already have one of the modded Android tablets just got some good news: the port of the Honeycomb preview that’s running on the Nook Color can now be rooted.

Dev NuroSlam posted a method of installing the necessary su and busybox files, which will grant apps like Root Explorer, Titanium Backup, and SetCPU root access.  It still isn’t working in conjunction with SuperUser app (which asks your permission for root), so you’re missing that extra layer of precaution.  But if you’re handy with a command line, check out our how-to root Nook Color Honeycomb thread and enjoy your rooted Honeycomb!

Sony Ericsson Neo

Sony Ericsson hasn’t even announced the Neo, but that didn’t stop the good folks at Techradar from getting their hands on a unit.  Formerly known by the name Hallon, the SE Neo is the Android version of the Symbian powered Vivaz’s unique form factor.  Ask anyone with a smartphone fetish and they’ll probably agree that Sony Ericsson brings beautiful and very well designed hardware to the table.  The curved back and center mounted rear camera (8.1 MP) on the Neo are great examples of this.  The truth comes when you turn them on, though.  Techradar says that Timescape running on Gingerbread has been improved, but we’ll have to withhold judgment until we get our hands on one.  In the meantime, head over to the source link and have a look.  You know you’re as curious as we are.  [Techradar]

Despite being slightly smaller than models such as the HTC Desire HD, there is still ample space without making the phone physically to large to be desirable. The 960 x 540 resolution does offer breath-taking clarity combined with a natural depth of colour. In fact, this screen does give the Retina display found on the iPhone 4 a run for its money.
