Looks like a great little device. Seems to only support EPUB, PDF and TXT, but that is better than nothing (or introducing a new DRM type).

Also let me say well done on announcing it just before the release in the next two weeks. I prefer this much more to teasing us for months.

EDIT: Now with video walkthrough by Techcrunch (thanks soilwork)
