Well in short, it was nice when it was new, now it just turned into an oversized phone that cannot even make phone calls.

Tablets try to squeeze too much into too little room. Jack of all trades, master of none. That is why I chose a dedicated reader. For what it is meant to do it does a pretty good job. I can read, occasional look up a word in dictionary, is light and small enough to carry everywhere.
You need a smaller tablet. 10" is too big. I have 7" KF and 5" tablet I love them. I can read just fine on them. I love my PW to read on most but I have no problems switching to a tablet to read.

Thanks, but no thanks. I might need a smaller tablet to read, but I am perfectly happy to read on my PW. When I need something portable to go online, I can always fallback to my 4.3" phone to surf, and PW to read.
