Sony's Reader PRS-T1 cracked open; first Angry Birds attempt fails

Despite claims from the hacking community that the Sony Reader PRS-T1 was immune to hacking because it lacked a full Android install, it appears it can indeed be modified. Hacker kuzelnik has posted a video of the e-reader running a handful of non-stock apps like Android Terminal and CoolReader, although Angry Birds didn't do so well.

It may be a while before the average user will want to try this hack -- kuzelnik notes that this software "is not ready for release yet" and that he's only successfully ran five different apps. Regardless, it's nice to see the parade of because-we-can Android hacking continue — check out kuzelnik's video below to see this hack in action.
