I have Android 2.3 on my current ereader (Kyobo mirasol ereader) and, while Android 2.3 is adequate for an ereader, it's very poor for a tablet (keep in mind that the mirasol has faster refresh than eink). If I wanted just an eink ereader I'd get any of the other devices with an optimized firmware—the Kobo Glo is significantly cheaper and lighter than the Onyx Boox.

At that time maybe they still lived with the imagination they were capable to program software that is stable and useful...

Oh be nice. Getting a stable Android build on an ereader is much harder I'd wager than putting out another custom ereader OS. The benefits of Android are clear: you get access to all the ereader stores on the device itself and nifty apps like Calibre Companion (by the way, screenshots of Calibre Companion on a Boox would be nice... Booxtor )

@booxstor:

Did you gave an eye to seaniko7's obuntu project in his current release?
It looks greatly promising.

Booxstor wrote few months ago that Onyx interupted work on porting Android. They decided to tune up current firmware first.
