Put on your rumor hats, board the rumor train, and buckle on your safety belts; we've got some juicy tech gossip for you that's just a little out there. Gizmodo has heard rumors from an undisclosed source that the upcoming Barnes & Noble E-Reader will run off of the Android OS. The rumor supposedly comes from someone who develops apps for Barnes & Noble.

Whether or not the rumor is true, an Android-run E-Reader is a fantastic idea. Most of the devices currently on the market (even the Kindle, in my opinion) have UIs that are sub-par at best, and godawful at worst. Any E-Reader running Android would have to seriously customize the OS, but it'd still offer a better user experience than anything else on the market.

As Gizmodo points out, E-Ink Android drivers do exist, so this whole idea isn't just coming out of left field. It sounds a little crazy, but the idea of an E-Reader with access to a decent app store is too tantalizing to not root for.
