Angry Arc & Incompatible Apps = Frustration

A few weeks ago, I made the choice to buy the Kobo Arc over the Nexus 7 tablet, but suddenly I'm having a bit of buyer's remorse.

Everytime I hear about a really great app that enhances the Android experience, it seems I hit a brick wall because the application isn't compatible with the Kobo Arc. I don't know if this is because the Arc is still using Android Ice Cream Sandwich, or because of the GPS requirements that have been talked about in other threads, but the overall user experience is starting to leave me with a bad aftertaste.

I know that developers can't comment on product releases, and nor should they make promises about delivery that they can't keep. But right now I'm starting to feel like I have a $200 paperweight with limited functionality. I wish I'd known about the Android GPS limitation before purchasing the device. I wish I'd known about the very real limitations between ICS and JellyBean. Had I known, I know I would have made a different choice.

Is anyone else feeling a bit burned by their decision to buy an Arc?
