Just broke my second Boox C67ML

So I bought a Boox C67ML and got it approximately last Nov. (And managed to screw up the firmware for a few weeks but got that straightened out.)

Then I broke the screen. Okay, it wasn't in a case, and I sat on it. Fair enough, my bad. I buy another.

And this one comes with a case, so, good, I put it in that case.

I flip open the case just a few minutes ago...and it's got a crack in the corner of the glass. Which I could live with, except it's apparently broken at least half of the touch sensing.

And the only stuff I did to it since yesterday was...have it in my pocket. Didn't take any hits, didn't do anything.

Grant total of time I have actually used these things is probably eight months, with shipping and software problems I caused. Broke two of them. That is absurd.

So my question is: Is there a *sturdier* Boox out there, or do I need to start looking for another brand? My requirements are a roughly six inch screen, eink of course, and a somewhat accessible root on a modern-ish Android. (4 or later.)

Well, that looks interesting...but appears to have no release date? Is there some sort of clue I'm missing? It says '~2016.5 COMING SOON~', does that mean *May* 2016? As in, right now? (I've never seen any date of the form '2016.5'. I know sometimes dates are yyyy-mm-dd, but yyyy.m? Huh?)

Also, I know I said at least Android 4...but why is a *new* device coming out with that? That seems dumb. I mean, I can live with it, but it seems dumb.

But Bluetooth would be nice, I find myself completely baffled by ereaders that come with headphone jacks and not bluetooth. I mean, I don't listen to any audio using them currently (My phone is perfectly fine at that...and, yes, if I wanted to listen to audio books I'd *still* use my phone.), but if I was going to listen to audio, it would be via bluetooth. I don't even *own* a wired headset.

Also, I'm hopeful they fix C67ML's totally idiotic partition setup, where to install almost anything, you had to get something like App2SD.
