This is what Bookeen is doing with their new model, or at least what Bookeen has said they will do (the MOBI firmware isn't available yet). The problem for Bookeen and for Jinke is that it costs money and other resources to support two firmwares. It probably costs more than supporting two readers in the same firmware (which would be the best solution, if only MobiPocket/Amazon allowed it). There really isn't much doubt that ePub is the better format for Europe going forward, so I can see why BeBook has opted to only support it on new devices
