this is a really fab product - e-reader plus a lot more
I took a punt on this based on very positive PR as the kindle "killer".
The fact that this reader does the basics really well , is a very thin and light - its about as half as thin as the sony . More to the point it has 2gb internal memory but also a removable SD . Then you come to the important stuff . It allows mircosoft software progammes to be up loaded and utisised via the mini keyboard. Voice recording for all those times when you need to get it all down - lectures , legal stuff etc.. Its future proofed as it will handle comic and newspaer formats. The personal organiser is on board as well . Dont follow the crowd buy this area.
