Installing third party apps on new Kobo Touch

Hi,
I'm looking to buy my first ebook reader in the next couple of days, and I've discovered that the Nook Touch can be "rooted" and then users can install android apps. I use Evernote, and this would be a huge advantage.

Can something similar be done on the Kobo Touch? I much prefer the pdf reading style on the Kobo and prefer its simplicity, but the ability to use Android apps is enough to sway me toward the Nook.

Thanks.

The Kobo Touch isn't Android-based.

You're probably thinking of the newer Nook touch eink reader... It IS running android, has been rooted, and can sort of run some additional android apps...
