Which E-book device do you have?

Okay, most of us list which device we have under our avatar. With so many new members, I thought it would be interesting to see, in one poll, whats out there.

Let me stress, this is not a popularity contest. (Are you listening, Ravenne? )

I will make it so that you can choose more than one, and try to list all makes including those that are no longer being made.

Info gotten from our own Wiki........lets see how I do on this one.

Wait for the poll......

yep, done.

i switched it for the sony 550, since i'm pretty sure that device doesn't exist (i think you mean the 505).

there is only one more slot available, so think very carefully before proposing any more additions.

i particularly like the last few options you included.

I see you made the change. And that would cover Blackberrys as well.

I also see we're tied at 50-50

Though still very early, apparently the sony 505 is a very popular device.

Now, just to throw a wrench into the works, in which countries can you purchase a Sony from, either a walk-in store, or by internet? Besides the US.

UK - (or should I say England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland ).

I'm not bitter.

Both are very old PDA, with grey LCD screen that is quite readable without backlight and is much bigger than a typical PDA screen of that era.

Also please add
Toshiba libretto (a very small notebook, of the [the first] pentium era)
Second-hand notebook
netbook (such as Asus eee)

Okay.......I guess you could delete the "you forgot mine" and the "they haven't made the one I want", Mods.

Mods? Casseopias could go on one,
secondhand on another?

Wouldn't the 'netbook' be the same as reading on your computer?
