Nate the greatest writes "It's been just over a month since the T1 launched and only a couple weeks since it shipped — and it has already been hacked. A video has surfaced that shows the T1 running a number of apps, including a new home screen, AW Launcher, and a couple of different reading apps. It can't run Angry Birds just yet, but this is still great news. There aren't any details yet on when you'll be able to hack your T1, but I bet they'll be filtering out fairly soon."

    So, did the one person who purchased one hack it? The marketshare of this thing is so tiny in the U.S., I can only imagine Sony continues to distribute them here out of some sense of corporate stubbornness, just as with their ATRAC music players that for years could not play an MP3. I can only imagine that these have some kind of viable market in Asia, where the Kindle and Nook don't exist. (do they?)

    I suppose it's not entirely broken by design (previous models in the line had serious shortcomings), but there isn't any reason to buy it over it's much more ubiquitous competitors either.

    And it just got undercut by the roughly equivalent Kindle Touch by $50.

I have never seen anything fill up a vacuum so fast and still suck. -- Rob Pike, on X.
