However, if I don't find any good options with an e-ink screen, I'll keep the Fire and Nexus 7 in mind!



Great! Let me know if it works!
It is more or less a regular tablet after you add Google services and play store. Out of the box it's pretty rubbish because Amazon store apps are not great. Except for good quality prime video playback and a decent Kindle book reader

I was never able to get gmail to work though. . Chrome, Google drive , YouTube work ok
I have to use the Amazon email app for my Gmail accounts, which is ok.

Ah, if you are wanting an e-ink device that runs Android, there are a few of those available now. One thing to note: all of these have in common that they run an outdated version (Android 6) that is no longer being patched for security issues. If that does not concern you, then these devices might be an option.

Boyue Likebook Mars
Pocketbook Inkpad 3
Onyx Boox (a variety of ereader devices, recently released Nova Pro)

You can find info about all these at their respective websites or here in the forums from current folks using them.

I use onyx boox nova with android 6. It woks much better than likebook plus and remarked like icarus. I suppose that likebook mars with similar specs would do a great work too.

pocketbook works with linux, i think there is no moon+ port to pocketbook.
