When I say ugly, I don't really mean it is ugly vs. beautiful.
I put a bit different meaning into it.
It has huge margins around the screen.
It is white.
It has huge keyboard.

All of this makes it unacceptable gadget for reading books. So, I don't care how many books would be available on this particular gadget if when I read a book I hold in my hand something so monstrous. When I hold in my hands Sony Reader, I hold something that is almost like a printed book and that is what I need.
