Is some type of mobile phone/data plan required? Or can it be used simply as a portable reader?

I think the main things are:

1. What formats will they cover?

2. Will there be an SDK for further, user development?

3. Will it be for specific phone providers (ala iPhone)? I don't want to be anchored into a bad network.

4. Will there be a wifi network for book pruchases?

And finally

5. Can you ensure the US don't get it for at least a year... maybe two. In revenge for other products. I think they need to know what it is like.

Is there be a Stylus available ? For me it's a must in order to operate a possible Look-Up funktionality in case a Dictionary will be supported for example.

- What service do I have to purchase to be able to get Readius?
- Can I get Readius without monthly "program" - that is without purchasing services from particular mobile provider?
- Will the phone be unlocked - that is available for use with SIM card from other telecommunication providers?
- Will I able to get one in my country (member of European Union)?

- Does the interface support folders for organizing files?
- Can I upload my own fonts?

- Can the device function in a "flight mode" - that is with the phone circuits switched off, so I can use it on the airplane or when I want to conserve battery or when I want to be "offline" in the evening and just enjoy a good book?

Well, if it's got a phone...

We won't be using it in California. Not after this first phase of draconian restrictions on cell phone use in automobiles.

What about other OSes?

Fine and dandy that it has *some* features, but what about an SDK so we can port over Open Inkpot???
