Eink Device for Apps?

Are there any eink devices that can run apps such as crossword puzzles and suduko?

Well, Kobo has Sudoku built in, but if you want to install your own apps you'd be best looking at an Android device like Onyx or Boyue.

Thanks for your response. I looked at the Onyx BOOX M96 at Amazon but don't like the size or that you have to use a stylus. Amason doesn't sell the Boyue anymore and I didn't find any other vendors.

Onyx has the T68 as well, if 6.8" is more your thing. No stylus needed (it's IR touch).

Thanks! I'll be looking into that option further.

Have a look at the xo-4 Touch OLPC. See my recent post here:

But note that it may be difficult to buy one. They aren't sold in stores.
