I hate reading e-books on the PC and this looks just great!

It was a technology that was being developed in japan a while ago to be used for cell phones, but it looks like its here already being used for e-books!

Long battery life. Leave wireless on and recharge approximately every other day. Turn wireless off and read for a week or more before recharging. Fully recharges in 2 hours.

Not sure about the EV-DO though, apparently its free.
I think that will be exploited in seconds to get free Internet access.
And I love the fact it supports wikipedia!!!!!

One thing I'm disappointed in is the price, $400 so I doubt I will be buying it Sad.

Well you have a choice between a palmtop, a tablet pc, a laptop or just printing it out.
Thise cheap palmtops with the 2 colour LCD display would be about the same level of screen quality I would say. Wink

Wont be long untill someone makes the same thing cheaper.
I just like the added features, especially the part where it supports wikipedia and lasts for a week!

technology is getting much more fascinating, just wish I knew how it all worked Cheesy.
