I have already had a Sony PRS-505 (wife dropped and broke screen last week) and I now have a Nook. I won't read out in daylight/direct sunlight. And the Nook is simply not 'android' enough...even rooted, there are very limited apps available and the tiny color screen is frustrating... lots of scrolling, scrolling...

Er... I looked at that flatcomputing site... why would I pay that price? Are they in the US or something? It's the exact same machine on a couple of other sites - just more expensive.

electroworld.cn has it listed as the ZT180 ($199)
wiipad.us has it listed as the wiipad neno ($231)
the flatcomputing price is $285
I have the prs-505 myself too for my ebooks.... thinking about putting up my Newton Messagepad 2100(+ accessories .. don't want to.. but...) on the auction block to help fund buying the "Freedom A10" from flatcomputing(or similar, but prefer a US company... warrannty.. shipping.. hopefully support...)

There's also the Orphan iPed M16 and Zenithink ZT-180 which have cortex a8 CPUs... go look at slatedroid.com forums when they come up again, generic devices -> A7/A8 subforum IIRC

[EDIT]
Also be VERY careful about what Chinese vendor you MIGHT buy your Cortex A8 tablet from...
