NOOKcolor gets Bluetooth hack

Another day, another NOOKcolor hack, and now it's the ereading tablet's Bluetooth capabilities that are getting unlocked. Out of the box, B&N leave the embedded Bluetooth chip deactivated, but occip of xda-developers has managed to turn it on and get it to scan and connect to other devices.

There are some drawbacks, not least that it's said to be a little glitchy at present, and you need to be running Android 2.2 on the NOOKcolor rather than the Android 2.1 it ships with. However, the tablet potential of this low-cost device continues to grow, potentially making it one of the more polished affordable slates on the market.
