After seeing how they butchered (only in my opinion, of course) the Kindle2, I don't have a lot of hope.

I will hold onto my two Kindle1's until they die a from being loved to death, and by then.........who knows?
I'm in 100% agreement with you dg.

That's really interesting to know. I'd read that Plastic Logic's screen size is 10.7" and I used my high school geometry to figure out that this means the screen is only 6.5"x8.5". Is this really going to be big enough to display 8.5"x11" pages? BTW, my math says the 9.7" screens are 5.5"x8" or thereabouts -- this assumes the screens have about the same ratio as an 8.5"x11" page, which has a 13.9" diagonal.
