I do like that it can provide other capability than just as an eBook reader.
I'm a big fan of the multifunction capability myself. I'm all good with the size (and the LCD display) as I want to start being able to read some of the comics files I have, and I want something that displays PDF's better than a six inch e-ink screen. I don't know if Calibre (my ebook reading software of choice) has the option to read landscape two pages at a time, so I'd probably turn it to portrait mode and read that way. I think it'd depend a lot on what I was reading. Another feature I'm excited about is the "trackball" control on the right side of this device.
I've been using a BlackBerry Curve for several months now, and can't imagine how I ever used a phone/smartphone without a trackball control, so I can only imagine how handy it'd be on this. The closer it gets to release, the more anxious I am to read some hands on extended use reviews of this - so if anyone here gets one, I'll be extremely interested in hearing what you think of it!
