I liked LRF, just didn't like the DRM. As far as your complaints about margins and font, I've only experienced that with books from the Sony store. Copies from places like Smashwords, and the default options from Calibre were much much better.
Personally, I always liked LRFs. They seemed to justify nicely. I never had any problems with margins and fonts, but i have never bought anything from the Sony Store.

The only reason I switched to Epub was because it looked like it had a more stable future.

The price for the T1? £150, I think. So yes, they wanted £300 for the 505 and, I think, the 600.
Thanks. Expensive place, Sweden!

I'm so stoked on this introduction! I love my current reader dearly, but I really enjoy that they're releasing one with a black border.

I've been toying with the idea of a second 505, to drop PRS+ onto, and some people want more than the original MSRP ($299.99) for a 505. I saw one guy with a 505 for $399.99. At those prices, T1 sounds even better.

Hmmm, maybe I should sell mine and buy two (or three?) T1s.

I don't know about other countries, but what attracts me most of this new Sony is its ability to download library books directly to the device over wifi. That's a major upgrade.

At first I was excited over that possibility since ADE annoys me when it comes to library books. Then I read the press release, and realised that it was Overdrive only. OTOH, a part of me is whispering it should work anyway.

The OverDrive app works well on my Nook Color and iPod touch, so it's good for me.

But shouldn't that remain the same, if they're within the same country?
