Yet another recomendation request

I've been reading through this subforum trying to decide which e-book reader I should purchase. There is a lot of good information here, but I have not found much information on a particular feature that I want.

The feature in question is the ability to display ebooks in arbitrary languages (specifically non latin character sets). I want to put my Armenian bible into whatever device I get and have it display correctly. I have the text in UTF-8 and there are plenty of truetype fonts that will display the characters correctly.

Armenian characters look like

Քրիստոս Ծնավ և Հայտնեցավ, Ձեզ և Մեզ Մեծ Ավետիս:

(the above is the traditional Christmas greeting and response)

From what I'm reading, I seems that the cybook gen 3 should be able to do this (At least some people are reading books with cyrillic characters, not sure if those are UTF-8), but I can't be sure and I can't tell which others might also work.

Other features that are important to me include

Linux compatible: I only use Linux
Open formats so I can use my content and PG content.
Fast boot or hibernate and resume capability.
