Um I would recommened buying the Sony reader 505 it just went down to 180 dollars a 130 dollar drop! And they announced it will be sold outside the United States. This deal stands until December 18th. Unfortunatly I bought one to early. The sony is nice and comfortable in the hand and offers 2000 different magazines.(50 from india!)

Good Luck!

Not sure about "with the penguins" - "away with the fairies", maybe, as it's not dropped. 500's are reported to be around US$199, though.

Ummm......No and No not with E Ink technology (well color is coming soon but will be overpriced for a couple generations at least). You can't back light E Ink because it is opaque.....you can front light it just like a regular paper book. Back lighting = eye strain and battery usage.

You should also consider the Bookeen CyBook. A little more expensive than the Sony, but it has a number of significant benefits, such as dictionary lookup, the ability to load any font family you wish onto the machine, and access to a significantly wider range of books than are available for the Sony.

The 505 did not go down in price. Please disregard any of the messages in this thread saying that it did.

Some jokes stop to be funny after a few repetitions.

You think im joking? I am a full grown penguin I don't joke. I have 25 off spring and I don't take kindly to the race that nearly destroyed the Earth! This is no joke we must all read and feed our knowledge to the underworld of the molerats so they can feed the fires of mount doom and satisfy the great white hand located in the center of the Earth. I do not joke my friend.
