Android has been put to the test in another portable eReader device. OPPO are as well established and respected Chinese brand who produce fashionable (smart)phones aimed at the younger demographic along with PMPs and other gadgets. OPPO has now decided to build an eReader E-ink device that will run Android.

Since announcing their first Android based handset at the end of last year (which we’re keeping an eye on for you), the company have seemed to have take a fancy to Android. With that said, we have little extra information to bring you about their eReader device other than the fact that it is E-ink based and will be about 6’’ in size. It is unclear as to whether OPPO will look to expand their brand outside of China, and it is therefore unlikely that this eReader device will compete with the Nook or Kindle for eReader dominance. With that said, the Chinese market alone is large enough to give OPPO a huge consumer base, so it will be interesting to see how they get on with this device. Take a look after the jump for a picture of the OPPO Android based smartphone too.
