On the positive side it's a completely open development environment without any DRM! I found it much more rugged then the current generation of e-ink devices. Oh and the battery life is just amazing.

The font you've selected doesn't do justice to the screen contrast either.

Enjoy you're new reader ZP!!! (but you might want to hold onto the EB-1150 in case you don't like it)

You know, he was lying about the wireless environment, don't you? I took one apart once and there were wires all over the place inside it. And the magic pixie dust that connect to the interwebs is just hell to get out of your mother's living room carpet.

backlight, backlight, don't you people get it ? REFLECTIVE screen ! sheesh. you don't hear people complaining about no backlight with paper books do you ?

you're right about the battery life though, truly amazing ! and y'all know i'm for open development and against drm so for me this device is just like a dream come true. plus i love the fact that i can use whatever custom font i want. brilliant.
