Will I find the screen as easy to read as the 500 if the answer is yes then i'll be thrilled..I imagine that the next edition will be ready in about 2 years anyway which is about as long as i've had my 500.
I went to the local Borders with my old trusty 500 to take a look at the 600. Certainly, as you know, not the best setting to see a reader, as there are lights everywhere. Still, I could move both readers a little bit around, and I noticed that the background of the 600 is definetily whiter than that of the 500, so it offers a better contrast. It's true that the 600 reflects more light than the 500, but it wasn't as bad as I expected. Honestly, I don't know what those 505 snobs are complaining about.
I actually quite liked it. If not for the Daily Edition, I would have bought right there. Well, let me rephrase this: if not for the Daily Edition and my wife, I would have bought it right there.
