I just can't work out why we have to wait for Q3 - I assume the same designer is currently trying to design a box to put it in.

I'll admit the 3G could be useful if it works in the UK but experience tells me it won't.
Might appeal if it widens access to books in Chinese or such.

The scanner sounds gimmicky to me, but maybe others will find it useful.
