For those who want something more functional (and more expensive) but full-blown tablet PC like at supposed sub $1K prices, I'm keeping my eye on the Motion Computing CL900.

And for those of you who are gluttons for punishment, and had your hopes raised and crushed by the Microsoft Courrier, check out NoteSlate (www.noteslate.com)

These are my 3 "keep an eye on" devices right now. Note: I'm only interested in machines with journal/annotation capabilities, so these are all skewed to replicating the stylus/writer experience, not necessarily the best plain e-readers.
I've been chomping at the bit over the Note, but I have to say that that goodereader video took a bit of the shine off. They made the thing seem like a $200 spiral notebook replacement, and I was definitely expecting more. Plus their video quality is poor and I wasn't able to really see the crispness of the display. The other promotional videos I've seen are more enticing (at least to me).
