    i have searched a bit and could not find anything that says yes you can root it. unfortunatley, in order to root a device you will have to have a dev (or someone with knowledge of finding exploits) to want to root it. if there is no interest then there is no way to root the phone. rooting usually requires an exploit in the os that can be used.

    so i'm sorry to say that i do not see one for it at the moment. not sure why you would want to root it though.

    ok unfotunately that is going against http://androidforums.com/introductions/704-site-rules-guidelines.html#post3504. plus games are not that expensive anyways.

    but like i said you will need to find an exploit somewhere so that you can gain root access. without an exploit you will not be able to root it.

    it only has 64MB of RAM???

    if that is correct... then just stop here.
    it aint going to run anything...

    it must be only designed to be a book reader.. nothing else.
    and some small games that it might have come with.
