i've been an e-book user for some time (5/6 years).
Started off with a laptop but had to buy myself a pda.
Have taken an interest in handheld devices again when i first read about eink and the illiad (although i'm too poor at the moment to get one
So have been lurking on MobileRead for sometime.
Like the details of the Sony, but i'm a techie and still having a few issues with things like root kits, proprietary formats and unnecessary DRM's !!)
