Default [Q] NST the only viable eink Tablet?

I have been looking around for an eink android tablet.
Is the NST the only option?
I understand that the screen refresh rate severely limits what you can do, but i was wondering if it is otherwise possible to run all apps?

As far as I could find, none of the other eink ereaders (Amazon Kindle, Kobo) can be rooted / made to run regular android apps.

You can also choose a 13.3" epaper tablet from sony:

I just can't precise if it even runs android.

I believe that neither Kindle or Kobo run android. They use a proprietary OS so, no rooting on them.

Check the Android on Kobo thread.
They can run Android 2.3.4
