I hope you enjoy it!
I've got all the Sonys from 350 on, and agree with Booky Girl - it's an excellent device, in my mind an decent improvement on the T1 (love the neat controls, very nifty.... ) I also think it's got back to feeling more substantial, but p'raps that's just the looks - the matt finish is great - but it just seems to have a bit more "heft".
And don't I ever agree with her comments about using the thing "out of the box" !
I can't be fussed with messing about for marginal gain, for what I want to use it for - reading.
