$199

Looks like it's tied into B&N for content (although hopefully you could install any Android app)

That is the price point I am looking for. The company also says that android apps will be available with the first firmware update which would make it great as a multimedia device. I wonder if the upcomming kindle app will work on this?

Offhand, I don't see why not.

If I remember well, the battery life for this device sucks. Otherwise, nice thing to have a color screen and $200 is not bad. Seems more like a tablet device than an eReader, but nowadays the border between the two is blurring fast.

Adobe Adept (Digital Editions DRM support)?

I was over at JC Penney's website and they have it up for sale now. It doesn't appear to be a pre-order. The thing is that they are charging $249.99. I don't know why it is 50 dollars more. So I think I will wait until it appears for sale on Pandigital's site.
