I appear to be searching for the impossible: I'd like an e-reader with an e-ink display that is running Android 2.3 or above natively, or can be hacked to do so.

For some reason they are very popular in Russia and Germany, but not in the UK.

Any suggestions?

The cheap Nook Simple Touch runs Android and can be rooted.

Think the Kobo is like the earlier Sony devices, its running a fairly standard minimised Linux distribution.

Yes, I know the Nook Simple Touch can be rooted, but it only runs Android 2.1 I think.

I've taken a gamble on a Sony PRS-T3 in the hope it can be rooted to load Android apps. It was either that or buy some obscure Russian/Chinese reader.
