No email came to let me know this. Kinda bummed since I already bought an ebook I am dying to read.
same here...bought 3 ebooks that I was looking forward to reading...

about annotations, I just tried some stuff on their elibrary software. yeah, only the first sentence or so of highlights get exported to document. However, one thing I was able to do was if you highlight epub books you can copy the highlights and past as notes. that way when you export, you can have it on page of exported file. it's a bit of a long way to do things but it's the only option at the moment. the bad part is I was hoping to export my pdf highlights for my study.

Yeah. I decided that I will have to look at them as notes while I write. Oh well. I'm kind of hoping there is a hack out soon.

What have they done to bookmarks!

Oh my, bookmarks are now pretty much unusable on the 600. No longer a button and to set a bookmark now you have to do the following within the book:

Press Options button
Tap Create/Edit Notes
Tap the bookmark icon
Tap Close Icon.

Four actions to bookmark a page! Why oh why Sony? It's unusable!

Let's hope someone works out how to customize the menus soon.

To set a bookmark, just double tap the top right corner.

Yep, WDE is correct, as usual ! All you have to do is double tap the upper right corner and wait a few seconds. The same to delete a bookmark. The only buttons they got rid of were the back button and the search which are now accomplished through the Option button.

And if you read in landscape mode, if you're reading the bottom half of the page double tap the bottom right corner.
