But I want it in something roughly the size of a Kindle DX. And not a netbook with keyboard as I already have PCs and Laptops that serve my needs on that front.
i agree...but I am willing to give those bi-curious convertible netbooks a look see. I would not mind having a more multi-function device as at least an option. I am already getting a Pocketbook 360 for reading novels. But a nice Pixel Qi based full color tablet would be just great perfect for reading reference books. I can hardly wait for this coming CES. I wish I could attend but those days are long gone for me. Just not up to that much effort.
I am also looking to what Pocketbook's large format reader is going to be like as well. But I do expect to hold off until we see the K3 as well as The Que and other readers based on the new plastic substrate panels. Even if they are only B&W if they could just get to 256k greyscale that would not be awful. But I bet we see full color before the end of next year anyway.
