Thanks for the suggestion. I use the Foxit PDF reader on my PC and it's so much better then Adobe's own product. But the problem I have with the Foxit eBook Reader is that the normal price is going to be $259 and that the $229 price is only for pre-orders. It's also important to note that the pre-order $50 deposit is NOT refundable. Plus you need to add on shipping charges. Since this is a 1st gen product for them I can't see pre-ordering it. Also, the PRS-700 can be had for $299.99 (using the Sony Credit Card you get $100 credit in 8-12 wks). And the Sony PRS-700 allows PDF zoom/panning which looks more refind then what I've seen in the video prototype they have posted on their website.
