torn down and rooted, turned into a tablet for ants"
Chris Wade, the intrepid dev behind the DingleBerry
PlayBook hack, has turned his attention to new device. One that
occupies the exact opposite end of the size spectrum -- the MOTOACTV.
The man started poking around inside the Android-powered sports watch,
actually tearing it open and splaying its innards across his palm for
all of us to see. Under the hood he discovered an OMAP 3630 clocked at
600MHz and 256MB of RAM. Then he put the whole thing back together and
the real fun began. Wade managed root the underlying Gingerbread
platform and turn it from a GPS tracker to 1.6-inch tablet by
sideloading the stock Honeycomb launcher. Wade even managed to bless
the tiny device with Market access, allowing him to install a certain
title featuring a flock of furious fowl. You'll find a few more photos
in the gallery below and a video of the hacked up sports watch cum
micro-tablet after the break. If you're looking to create your own
