Anyone using a Blackberry Storm for e-reading yet?

I just picked one up today and from what I can find the choices are very limiting. Mobipocket refers you to their most updated Blackberry reader but I find it to be completely non-functional - the keyboard covers half the screen and you can't get rid of it! I did finally manage to copy some of my files to the machine but I couldn't get them to open and from what I hear it blows chunks after that anyway.

Anyone else with a better experience? I have mostly mobipocket files but I can convert as I have removed the DRM.

I know it's new and all but there has to be something?

Well, the Storm is _really_ new and, well, there hasn't traditionally been that much in the way of downloaded ebook apps for Blackberries in general. Mobipocket is the best, in my opinion.

And yet I can see how that work irk me to no end. All the nice screen real estate unused. I imagine Mobipocket is going to simply have to update their application before it can take advantage of the entire screen.
