I agree about the wifi's lack of interest value. My new 360+ just showed up a couple of days ago, so I haven't had a chance to test its speed, but that will be a pleasant upgrade. I must have just gotten under the wire for North American purchases. The second vendor I tried completed the sale and I have it in my hands, but their site no longer has a 'buy' button on any Pocketbook products.

Well, not for all (or even most) touchscreens. Now. But it appears that the newer models are becoming more and more 'touch only" so that does seem to be where the trend is heading.

Sony still has physical controls. Kobo has a home button, everything else is touch. Most Kindles still have controls, but the newest one, the Kindle Paperwhite, is all touch. The Nook Simple Touch still has page turn buttons as well as a home button, but no other navigation controls. Pocketbook is no longer in our market, so for me they don't count...

So it looks to me that touch only is the ideal they are working towards.
