From what I have read, the kobo Overdrive implementation has several restrictions.
1. The library book you want to loan must also exist in kobo store.
2.The book is delivered via kobo store, not from Overdrive itself.
3. This is only officially supported in 4 countries. But heard someone has got it working on a non-supported country.

So the easiest way we can borrow overdrive books will be with an Android e reader?

Yup. I heard there is a Tolino ereader that has built-in ADE so you can download the Overdrive book directly from the device web browser. Sony old ereaders like the PRS-T1 had this capability too.
