Apparently you can, but my point is that for most, being able to easily buy and read the books you want is the key. That's why I don't think it will be anything other than a niche product in the US. I'm willing to jump through hoops to read books that I buy at Amazon, on my Kobo reader. My sister isn't.
Honestly, "niche product" can basically be applied to eInk eBook readers in general. I wouldn't argue that the general population of eBook readers would prefer more convenience, but I was posting on MobileRead where (I believe) the majority of members are more technologically savvy.

I also wanted people to understand how easily you can buy or borrow eBooks for PocketBook devices. If you usually buy your books from Amazon using your computer, then the experience of buying is almost as simple with a PocketBook. And you have many more choices.

Pocketbook can download ACSM files and turn them into ePub (with DRM).

Yep. No need for ADE on your computer. (Well, you still need it if you want to de-DRM your ePubs and use Calibre with them.)

And no need for a computer when not at home.

Use my phone to buy or borrow from Overdrive and download on the Pocketbook. No problem.

That's been true for a long time. It's even worse when something is out of stock.

Please use phrases like "I couldn't find..." rather than "they don't sell..."
