- Touch or not touch screen? As an avid ipod touch user, my first instinct is to get a touch screen device... but I heard they are not very good for prolonged reading... is that true?
Yup, they are not as good. Some can't stand it, others don't mind. Guess it's kind of a question of taste.

- Refresh rate, I don't know if there is muc difference between devices but the faster it jumps pages the better. I get a bit annoyed when things go slower that I expect them to go.
It's annoying at first, then, you don't feel it any more.

PS: I forgot to mention that my collection has many self scanned PDF books which I think cannot be reflowed by the devices... any solution to this?
OCR and conversion to ePub / mobi. Or a large screen reader (ie >=8". )

Pocketbook 901 might be the one for you when it's out, or prs-600, as it does reflow.
Where you read is also to be taken into account, obviously a larger screen means an heavier and bigger reader.
