Ha! Since I'm Dutch I can paraphrase the original article for you.

The 160dpi screen is apparently very bright and usable in sunlight.

The battery life is supposed to be three hours a day for a full week.

The device is primarily meant for reading and annotation.

It has a simple MP3 player.

It is not meant for web browsing, although the article doesn't say it absolutely can't do this. The WiFi capability does let you download content (magazine subscriptions) through hotspots. You can also store your own documents.

It is targeted at mobile travellers, law firms, medical community and libraries.

It's going to appear this Spring in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe. The article heading says "start of 2006", so that would be early Spring.

No price indication, unfortunately.
