I'm kind of curious to know how often anyone here has changed the battery in their ebook readers? It's nice to be able to, and it certainly adds some longevity and usefulness to the device. But I honestly think that by the time I wore the battery down to the point where it needed replacing, I could probably pick up a new reader for a fraction of the current price.

Depends on how you use/abuse the battery. If I don't let the battery drain on my laptop all the way before plugging it in, then it develops a point where it will not charge past a certain charge. After a couple years, I had to buy a new laptop battery because mine would barely hold a charge for 20 min, and that was only using Word, or surfing the net.

Heck, mine's almost new, and I'm finding it hard to resist pre-ordering an Astak 5"!

Don't get me wrong, I love my jetBook, but from what I've been seeing over here on the Astak thread that's one sweet machine!

Robert, how about that USPS shipping you were looking into?

I think that Robert is a good salesman!

Three weeks ago I had my heart set on a txtr. But now I think that I will see what the Pocket Pro early adopters think of that unit's build quality.

No matter what specs Robert touts, if the unit seems to be junky I'll give it a pass. But if it's solid, I think I'll go for it.

The txtr being German, I would be very surprised if it were junky. But they will have wireless options, and its price may be in line with the Kindle 2's $299 rather than the Sony 300's $199. If so, I'll go with the $199 Pocket Pro.

I will also be curious to see if the txtr has a user-changeable battery. I wonder how many people think that that feature is as important as I do.

I definitely think it's a huge selling point. Regardless of how solid , well-built, or high quality of the device, there will always be the chance that you have a bum part, and a battery is high upon that list.

There's nothing worse that waiting months for release, preorder, waits a week on the shipping, and when the deivce comes in, have to send it back (extra shipping) wait up to 3 weeks before getting it back (one week to ship up, a week to fix-they had many to replace, a week ship back). That happened to my brother-in-law.

So yeah, being able to replace your battery by yourself is a GREAT boon.
