HarryT, I was just comparing the matrix.
For you certain things might not matter that do matter for me. Having more or better is always better. Eg: 8MB RAM could translate into faster pageturns than 2Mb flash memory.
Second, the SDHC as far as I know I haven't seen any SDHC devices on a USB1.1 controller.
I do have seen them on USB2.0 controllers running on USB1.1 speeds.
I expect Sony to have already had a SDHC device build in their PRS-505 reader, only not the firmware to support it at initial release.
I think the Hanlin has only a SD card reader, which is not compatible with SDHC. I don't know of the Cybook.
Tompe: I think MicroSD cards will be around for a while. MicroSD cards are non SDHC as far as I know of. You just need an adaptor.
Also the standard SD cards will be available in 2 (?and 4GB?) for maybe a few years.
Patatan: You can convert ebooks on both devices. I give points for the support the device itself gives without conversion. You can always convert using a pc on either both devices.
About the battery, maybe I didn't say it well enough. One (replacement) battery is easy to get, the other one is less (probably costs more too).
This is all a factor that comes into play here, that changes the score scale against the cybook.
I'm not saying Cybook is bad, and BeBook is the best; I'm just looking into functionality.
Though truth being I'll probably never use anything like wolf or prc; still, you never know when all of a sudden you'll start discovering a site with books in this format (or something)...
