Cynanogen makes Android incredible. Ask anyone that has rooted their device, and put Cynanogen or a custom ROM on board. Check out the video below that demonstrates what this nifty little tablet can do. It demonstrates some seriously impressive frame rates in some very demanding games, and runs apps with ease. Plus, flash plays in the browser, and works quite well. Bottom line – it’s a huge improvement over the stock experience, and runs smooth!

Although it’s running off an Android 2.3 Gingerbread foundation, the Cynanogen team has taken it to a whole new level, with tons of great custom tweaks and updates, that make it a joy to use.

The video below demonstrates the Nook Color, overclocked to 1.2Ghz (from 800Mhz), and is running Cynanogen Mod 7, Encore Nightly 85. It demonstrates the performance of a ton of different popular games, and if you’re more focused on web browsing, and app usage, just go to 9:00 minutes and beyond to see what you can expect!



The Nook Color is one of the best selling Android tablets in the world, and can be had for around +$250. With Cynanogen on board, you can see the possibilities become literally endless. Developers and hardware fanatics decry the lack of performance, graphically, but it seems pretty good to us! Stay tuned for more!

Would you buy one of these tablets or do you have your heart set on something else?

Be sure to take a look at Cynanogen’s Wiki if this gets your blood flowing.
