Thanks
Did my own research by buying one...Calibre identifies it as an Aluratek Libre Color (which seems to have similar multimedia support) but this has a touchscreen with some bad spelling mistakes in the somewhat basic firmware..like the sleep off setting and a choice of "miniutes" .

Seems to work fine for epubs and movies but not an Android device.
