The 900 supports ADE's DRM, and any un-DRM'd ePub. That covers pretty much every seller except Apple and B&N that provides ePub.

Calibre will send files to the 900 via USB, but the 3G is currently limited to accessing the Sony Store.

Amazon tends to be a bit cheaper, but I like not being locked into Amazon's format. I can take books from Sony's store to other devices, which to me is worth an extra buck. I don't really use the 3G for free books because of places like feedbooks, so I can't say much here.

The Kindle's screen was too dark? I heard it was one of the better screens out there for e-ink. If the Kindle 2 was your first e-reader, I think you might be even more disappointed with the 900's screen, which is really the same as the Kindle 2's. The whites might be a bit whiter under the right light, but as these guys aren't backlit, they will all appear dark in low light.

I'd check out the 600/900 in a store first (Best Buy has display models of the 600, at the very least, as does Borders). Can't really answer this last, and important, question for you. You have to see it for yourself.
