Hmm, interesting. I wonder if apps would include Evernote, Dropbox etc. I guess it depends on what "Android OS" means.

Having just today killed my Aura HD (but immediately ordering another) I will be tracking this one.

A reader where I could install Calibre Companion for organization along with my choice of reading app(s) would hold a fair amount of interest.

Neither the original German article nor the press release mention a version number. The German piece does specifically list Dropbox as an example of what can be installed, though. Also noteworthy, it has a PDF reflow feature.

Quite interesting.
Does anyone have more information?

Specifically, what processor? "1Ghz Rookchip processor" doesn't say much (System on a Chip, ARM, includes MP3 and perhaps others)...

Aside from that, I'm definitely considering buying it. My trustworthy Kobo still works fine, but with that I might be able to actually install Boinc on my eBook reader <ggg>
(Just for laughs, the perfomance would likely be horrible.)

Thanks, here is a (google) translation of the press release:

The imcoV6L is the first "open " E-Ink eReader with Android operating system. For the first time users can install on a eInk Reader individual apps - whether as Mail , Dropbox or eLibrary weather app, the user is free to decide which individual apps he wants to install and use ( the selection of apps is limited only by the technical possibilities of the instrument ) .

The imcoV6L with its very slim case (8.9 x125x166mm ) has an absolute top features :

* 6 " eInk HD screen ( 1024x758 )
* 1GHz Rockchip processor
* 256 MB of RAM
* Multi-Touch Panel & additional function keys
* Front - lighting Light
* WiFi
* 4 GB of internal memory ( approximately 3.2 GB available)
* MicroSD memory slot (max. 32 GB)
* Headphone jack and built-in speakers
* Adobe DRM , EPUB , PDF reflow , MP3, WMA and more .

With the imcoV6L can inter alia as usual the DRM-protected WMA Audiobooks can be played offline the eLibrary - the ImCoSys AG is the only manufacturer in the market , which offers this feature on eInk readers. Who is mobile on the go knows the problem of lack of Wi-Fi hotspots very well, bringing the ImCoSys with their WMA app provides a very user friendly feature. The corresponding new Android app is also acquirable individually, so that the user eLibrary audiobooks as also be heard on Android tablets and / or Android-based smartphones offline. For the development and distribution of the WMA eLibrary App ImCoSys is a partnership with the renowned speakers and qualified librarian, Mr. Eckhard Kummrow BibCon and his company, received . Mr. Kummrow will be periodic also present on ImCoSys booth and available to libraries like for specialized information.

The first time imcoV6L brings color to the drab housing covers, and is available with different colored flashbacks .

The imcoV6L is cheap Euro/129 CHF 99 (incl. VAT). Available .

I am so going to rock this. The point of an open android eink device isn't angry birds, but the myriad of ebook readers available. It's about using the tools that give you the best reading experience.

Look closely at the picture of the screen, does anything look familiar? It's a screenshot of a Kindle (2 or 3 I would think). Not ready yet?

If it can run Calibre Companion and Moon+ Reader with acceptable performance, I'll pick it up, too. 256 MB RAM is on the low end, though, and there's no mention of the Google Play store anywhere.

It's without question the e-ink device this year that interests me the most. Hopefully, there will be more information available soon.

Their website also shows a flexible e-ink reader (among a ton of different models in their range)?
