It Arrived!!

So, my new toy arrived this afternoon.

While I've hardly had a chance to look at it, a couple of very very rough first thoughts:

The screen is gorgeous.

The screen is also very smooth to touch compared to my Glo, although that could be an age factor.

There appear to be no pinpricks as far as the light goes. There may be some slight uneveness in the light (vertically), but if there is, it is very subtle and you have to look pretty hard to see it. I'll reassess in a couple of days, but I'm not expecting to have any issues with it.


My biggest issue at the moment is waiting for it to fully charge, so I can actually do some reading on the thing.

Do you plan to submerge it in water?

Ummmm. Good question.

Probably not deliberately, but I certainly have more peace of mind if I frop it in some water accidentally. I'm also more likely to read around/in water too.
