I would have like to have seen them explore the features and the content-buying options more. It sounds like they spent 5 minutes with each device and gave their first impressions. That's not much of a real review.

I don't think they put all that much effort into the 'review'

But it's nice to see the Cybook and at least one Jinke variant mentioned. Still, I'd have liked to see the BeBook in there.

Even so, I tend to think it may well be all over but for the emoting. I support the BeBook (of which I'm an affiliate) and the Cybook, but I'll also be affiliating the Kindle 2 on my blog page and in my sig lines. I may not consider the Kindle to be the 'best' design, but with Jeff Bezos and Amazon acting the part of the 800-pound gorilla in the room, I figure that's gonna be the 'sales champion'.
