eReader with phone book / contacts
I want to buy an eReader for my dad's birthday, but after I already settled on buying the Kindle 3, my dad challenged me.
He wants an eReader that will replace his need for a pocket pc, meaning he would have 2 options the Kindle don't have:
1. A phone book / contacts application where he can save all the names and phone numbers he needs.
2. An option to create "notes" but not as notes to a specific book, I mean notes as an independent option - for writing and saving information (not about books).
Is there a good eReader that have these 2 options? Of course the reader should have an e-ink screen.
Thanks, waiting for an answer.

You can always create a word document with the contacts and send that to your Kindle. You just have to update it from time to time. I think there are notes applications for the Kindle, check Amazon.

You can easily create a contact list on a PC and move it to a Kindle as an ebook. There are many ways to do this including Amazon's own service for converting formats like Word DOC and sending them to the Kindle over wireless, WiFi or 3G.
For simple note taking, you can simply create a trivial "book" and create the note there. Check out this blog post for a complete description and a "book" to download: http://www.edukindle.com/2010/09/not...r-ideas-handy/
