Wow nice huge fat list! Made yourself a big chunk of work there!

I just realised that a lot of our questions (my own included) are things we could find out on the Touch with new firmware as well... more or less. I have another question concerning the front light LEDs... I see you already have some stuff about that in your outline, but as I'm not sure what exactly you're planning to say about them, I'll just add my query.

I'm concerned that the light will be too bright, even at its most dim setting. When I read in the dark, I only need very very little light to read, and the more light, the more tired my eyes get. I have an E-luminator now that (I think) has two or three LEDs in there and three different brightness settings. Even the most dim setting is sometimes too bright, and as the Glo will have more LEDs... well, you get the picture. Could you test it in the dark, and see how much light the dimmest settings gives? I'm not sure how you're supposed to review that, as of course this could be extremely subjective... but it's worth a try I'd say.

Thanks again 9littlebees, I'm sure I can speak for lots (most? all??) of us and say we're extremely happy you're putting so much of your time into this for us!
No problem, I'll make sure to comment on light brightness at the lowest level. I'm like you, where I only want enough light to read by when it's dark, so this is definitely something I'm planning on testing, especially since I hate reading on LCD devices. I can't really measure the amount of light, so it will just have to be my own thoughts on the matter.

I've come to realise how much time this is going to eat up, and can't promise that my review will be posted straight away. I'm currently hoping to get it done and posted by the weekend of the 6th/7th, especially since I have a lot going on mid-week during the evenings, with Tues, Wed & Thurs nights taken up...
