It seems that the Sony ebook readers internaly run some kind of Linux
(MontaVista Linux). I heared someone saying that there are images for
eeprom out there to get access to the Linux system itself. Is there any
work in progress to install FreeBSD on this (or any other ebook reader).

They have a real nice greyscale display of 600x800 to read epub or PDF,
even in daylight sun, and as they now also have Wifi on board, it would
be nice to combine this with access to mail by some alpha MUA, for
example mutt...
