At the moment, we lack an appropriate basis of discussion, since we don't know any app (besides Kindle and Kobo, but come on - that's a bad joke?!), that actually works on an ereader with eink... Maybe there will be certain eink devices in the future, that will be compatible with a lot of apps. But I honestly doubt a device like the Boox M92 would provide a nicer experience if there was an android mod for it. I simply can't imagine that any "real" android app would run on it given all those touch gestures, animations, etc.

Btw, 256 mb ram with android 2.2+? Horrible - I'm a Milestone owner, I know what I'm talking about. Just forget it. It's a pain. And I have to admit that I simply don't like android - it's not really open source and it's so crappy to actually build an android mod. For the whole build procedure you'll need up to 90GB on your hard drive!!!
