Arrow ​What ebooks include Android, microSD slot and is it possible to root them?

What ebooks include Android, microSD slot and is it possible to root them?

I am very interested in getting an ebook that meets the following characteristics:

Android operating system
Possibility of rooting without touching the hardware
MicroSD slot to expand device memory

Can anybody help me?

Thank you very much.

Perhaps you mean which ereaders have Android? In the past, there were a bunch of producers attempting to combine Android and eink, but right now we have only Onyx Boox and Boyue, most readily available from China on the website banggood.com

Assuming you do mean ereaders, as well as the products mobama mentions, in Europe there are Android offerings from Icarus, Energy Sistem and Inkbook that come to mind.

For European purchases, you can also add the Tolino ereaders. I seem to remember some of them (Shine 2HD?) have uSD card slots.

edit: Should have noticed that you show a Tolino Vision as your current ereader.

As others have pointed out, there are a number of readers out there that meet all your criteria. To help us help you narrow this down, what other criteria are important to you? Do you want a six inch display, or something larger? Does the amount of internal storage matter to you? Or what version of Android a device runs? How much can you spend on such a device? (You can sometimes find lightly used ones in good condition.) Are there other features you are looking for?

Hi thanks. It is very important that you have an Android version from Android 4.0.4, that can be rooted and install third-party applications. In addition, I consider it very important that the book be resistant materials (I have read that the Onyx are broken just by looking at them ...).

As for the inches, about 6 or 8, I want to take it to the park to read comfortably.

Note that all eInk readers (except for a few big 13.3" models) use screens that have a thin glass backplane and therefore models from any manufacturer can be considered somewhat more fragile than say a smartphone or tablet. That's not to say they break if you look at them wrong, but that they do take a bit of care especially when transporting in a bag with other items and such.

Expensive option: a new Onyx or Boyue, normally purchased from banggood.com if you are in the USA.

Or the new Nook Glowlight 3. Can install apps and can be rooted.

Cheap option: an old Nook ST. Easy to root and work very well. But comes with an ancient version of Android. You would need to find old apk files to sideload apps.
