I need a reader to take notes

Hello everyone, I need a reader to take notes. I had thought of a Kindle 2 or Iriver Story. Hanvon Now I'm using the N518 with touch screen. But it is very slow. He had also thought of an iPod Touch or Archos 5 Android. A Netbook can not be, because I need more battery. What do you think? What do you recommend me?

Greetings and thanks.

I've been mulling this sort of thing as well.

Is the Hanvon N518 the same as the Onyx Boox 60 / BeBook Neo? I'd thought I'd read that somewhere, but the Hanvon site shows them as quite different.

Bummer if so, 'cause that had been one of my considerations --- the only other reader which seems to afford a real facility for note-taking would be the Sony PRS-600 (and it has no handwriting recognition, getting at the notes and annotation requires a Python Script or 3rd party tool, and it's a touch display, so works on pressure --- no Wacom stylus like the Onyx / Neo).

The Hanvon N518 is almost equal to the models you mention, the only thing that brings handwriting recognition and onscreen keyboard (like the PDA). The problem with touch screen reader is that they are very, very slow, so he had thought about the Iriver Story, I guess that having keyboard will be faster.

I'm holding out for a Microsoft Courier; either to be declared vaporware, or a release date announced.

If it turns out to be vaporware, well, then I'll keep looking.

Would a netbook possibly meet your needs better? If I was doing any serious note-taking, I would want a real keyboard, even a small one, rather than the Kindle's thumb-keyboard, or any of the various on-screen ones.
