received my T1 reader yesterday and I'm liking it a great deal.
I've read on the T1 both inside and out as well as with and without the light and have not noticed any distraction from the glossy frame.
Text is very clear in all of the environments I've read in so far.
Page turns are fast and less distracting than the Nook Touch.
I've been flipping between the Sony Software and Calibre (beta support at this time)
Side loaded 400 books to a sd card, Library support is cool.
I'll be away this weekend so I plan to use it extensively. more later.
