I think the $150 price point might be a bit low, or unrealistic. In my opinion, and much of this is just personal preference, the ability to highlight and take notes in the books themselves is a huge study aid. I don't see a decent quality reader coming out with the requisite touch screen in the $150 price range.

And if it does then I think Kovid needs to add some support for notes and highlighting. Of course that would be device specific so maybe that is where some money may be made.
