And, of course, one can also run OpenInkpot (and it's suite of apps) on all Jinke V3 equivalent devices (EZ-Reader, BeBook, Jinke V3) either AFTER replacing the original firmware with OpenInkpot or in "live" mode where OpenInkpot runs from the SD card - leaving the original firmware in place on the device. Yay!
And you can always buy the BeBook through my associate's link which credits me with a (very) small commission. See my signature line below.
