I have to say that the Sony Reader knocks spots off the Hanlin models and the Librie. I have at last got hold of the Sony PRS 500 and find it really easy to operate. It looks great with the leather edged cover and is comfortable when reading. The links to Connect store are OK at the moment and I am sure will get better as more content is added. Downloading ebooks from Gutenberg and converting to the Sony is easy and works well. MP3 player is good also.
Only problem - you have to have a US credit Card for buying from Connect store. Does Sony not know that there is a huge potential European market out there!
