I really don't understand why people ask this sort of question. I agonized for a long time and ended up going with a Sony, and am very happy with that decision. That said, there are things the Kindle does infinitely better than the Sony, namely Whispernet. A person can make a sacrifice between two different things, both of which are important to him/her, and still look around for solutions. It's why people on the Sony forum ask if the reader can support WiFi. The ease of being able to connect on the net to Feedbooks is amazing.

Sony doesn't come with native asian character support, it came about because people who bought Sonys before the language patch was available still wanted some kind of hack to make it possible, and that opened doors for even more people to purchase the Sony. What's the problem with asking for this kind of development if it's possible, even if one bought a Kindle knowing that it doesn't support certain languages natively? Why do you have to ask such a condescending question in response to a request?
