I still love and use my EB1150 though. Just a great piece of technology, and I miss the backlighting, touch dictionary and ability to mark up copy that the Sony reader lacks.
I started with the REB 1100 (great B & W), then had
to have the REB 1200 (great color), then picked up a backup REB 1100, then some Sony Clie PDAs, then nothing. I had saturated my use of different ebook readers.
Then along came the eBookwise 1150, and my content world opened up again! I actively used the ebook readers again. My wife now has the EBW 1150 and my kids each have a REB 1100. No one uses the Sony PDA for reading ebooks. Since then I have mostly prepared my own content and was able to get a backup REB 1200.
By the way, the REB 1200 is the most enjoyable, whereas the Sony Clie TH-55 with its ereader software the least enjoyable of the lot (relatively speaking).
The Sony PDA used a very small bold font (swiz 21 12pt) which allowed the maximum possible text on screen and still legible. It was a great combination but waned in comparison to the (larger screen) dedicated ebook devices.
I will probably hold-out for a color e-ink device as my next ebook reader, but it must have the 'features' of the REB 1200 / EBW 1100.
