Interesting Twitter exchange I had today with @hadrien, who runs Feedbooks:
Even if we all find out that the new Sony Reader WiFi is Android underneath, it will remain up to the Android wizards to:
1) Discover if it can be rooted
2) Root it
3) Try software on it
4) Distribute a rooting method we mortals can use
I am particularly eager to find out if Graffiti for Android can work on it after rooting. That software cannot be used on the Nook Touch because the software is English-only and offers no options for alternate keyboards, as I believe the international-language Sony does.
