But it's too much work for us users to port Android to a device that has no official support for it.
the other thing is, that the article on the-digital-reader.com also wonders, whether there actually is an android app, that has the functionality that we are looking for. And I'm wondering, too: Is there an Android app that does what we want _and_ that's likely to run on eink device?
Well, they had to "port" Linux as well - with dismal results, as we all know.

Available apps? Plenty. For PDF-reading/annotating, multiple clipboard, notes applilkation, email, writing ...
