I actually thought most people liked touch screen when they didn't have a mouse, a keyboard, and a very large monitor like I am at right now, but I have never seen any kind of survey. I assume you don't have WiFi available is the answer to your other point and then ...

That is amazing.
I havent found much need for a mouse with my Kindle, nor a keyboard with the exception of registering and naming the occasional collection. Not sure I would want a 22" display for ebooks either.

I have heard of this reading thing of which you speak. I doubt it will catch on.

Seriously, a $199 tablet is more like it. I still want a 10-incher though.

FFS is much better for outdoor viewing that most , if not all, other back lit LCDs

Unfortunately, I think you may be disappointed. I think the rumored 10.1" tablet Amazon intends to put out will take it's place. I sympathize, as I was an early (1st gen!) adopter of the DX, and a long time supporter of the format. However, since I got my Touchpad a month ago I have barely used my DX at all. The only thing I really miss is the 3G connectivity. Frankly, the Touchpad does everything else my DX does, and it does it better.

I refuse to adapt to a back-lit screen.
Barely use my ipad or even my k3G for that matter.
I prefer the large eink format.
my DX better not break then...

Tomorrow about Noon, NYC time, all Amazon Friends and Kindle Lovers everywhere can join hands and run down the sidewalks, and out into the streets, while singing:

"Bob Marley - I Can See Clearly Now

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It's gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day..."

Thanks.
I remembered the song and melody but when I looked up the words and the singer. Google came up with Marley among others, but when I went back I found:

"it is a common misconception[by whom?]that the song was written and/or previously performed by Bob Marley, possibly based on the fact that The Wailers were the backing band on Nash's original recording. Marley wrote Nash's next single, "Stir It Up". Nash wrote this song himself and recorded it in London with members of The Average White Band.[citation needed]"
