  • Amazon has the greatest likelihood coming out on top and staying there in the ebook reader business, as evidenced in part by the fact that BN is discontinuing the Nook 3G;
  • current gen Sony PRS is more expensive than K3;
  • K3 has the option of free 3G which, more than buying/dl'ing books can even access websites (such as this one);

and more reasons, but I think I made my point thus far.
  • stripping DRM may be illigal in your country (the OP comes from Norway)
  • Sony has a huge bookstore and the same prizing as Amazon and you can shop in all the Norwegian ebook stores too
  • others have wonderful customer services too
  • Sony has the greatest likelihood of staying on top in Europe
  • current K3 features a cheap keyboard whereas the Sony has IR touchscreen
