1. I am not allowed to buy it, because I am not American.
2. There are way too many unknown factors and questions.
3. I am waiting for first hands-on reports. I was getting ready to purchase Sony PRS-700, but after first hands-on reports I was glad I did not preorder.
Some of the unknown features and questions:
Is it user configurable?
Can I load my own fonts?
Does it have folder support?
Can it load 3rd party applications?
What does it mean "preconfigured WIFI"?
Can I use it with MY home wifi router?
Can B&N see what I am doing with the device?
Can they see inside documents I have loaded using USB?
Can they delete content like Amazon did?
Will they delete content?
How much is it locked down?
What is the real battery life?
Can I switch off 3G network while keeping WiFi on?
The list goes on and on and on ...
