I'm interested but still VERY concerned about:
-that it might have the same problems as the NookGlo with white dots on the screen.
- eye strain, eye strain, eye strain: a million times over. Sure it's not backlit, it's front lit but the lights are still there facing you. After being in front of an LCD screen, iPad, and iPhone most of the day I want to rest my eyes.
-How delicate will it be? Kindles are delicate enough as they are, my Nook has been checked in twice on the front pocket of my suitcase (forgot it was there) and has survived long trips and the gentleness of baggage handlers in UK and AU.
just looking at replacing as the battery life on Nook is abysmal.
