There aren't nearly enough trash piles with consumer junk on this planet?

I would be interested in an Android e-reader (e-Ink screen). That way I wouldn't have to worry about ePub 4.0 or 5.7 or whatever comes out after that.
The trouble with Android is that you would still have to worry as OS upgrades are mostly non-existent and Apps are typically only targeted at the latest OS. To me this is the biggest drawback of Android.
