One reason is probably that unlike Sony they have not respected the GPL and release all the source code they need to release. So it is harder to do plus why should you program hack and add value to the Cybook which is an advantage for Bookeen when they do not respect the GPL?

OpenInkpot can be seen as a mod and will probably work on the Cybook in the future.
