1. Yes - books can be tagged to user-defined collections, i.e. one book can be tagged to multiple collections. Collections can be sorted in several ways.
4. Well, since the 30-day period for we early adopters is not quite up quite yet, I would say it may be very close to what is advertised, provided one does keep the wireless function off. (at least in my experience)
5. I find the note taking capability to work fine for my needs. Notes and highlights are stored in a myclippings.txt file and there is at least one creative individual that has created a Word template to import your notes into a table. You can easily move your myclippings.txt files via drag and drop when connected to your computer.
8. Sideloaded books reside in the same folder (/Documents/) as your Amazon books. The Kindle's Documents folder looks like any other folder containing various files. They can be assigned to collections just as any Kindle book.
