Kobo Glo e-reader becomes an Android tablet after hack

by TabTimes Staff

November 4 2013

You wouldn't expect an e-reader to be very customizable, but they've provided a rich seam of fodder for enterprising hackers.

The latest to be broken is Kobo's Glo, which has has been tweaked to run a full version of Android by a user on MobileRead's forums. 

It was relatively easy, as the Glo shares a lot of DNA with the previously-cracked Tolino Shine. Naturally, the hack gives you Google Play access, so it's entirely possible to install the Kindle app on the reader.

But remember -- you'd be breaking a lot of hearts over at Kobo towers if you do.
