Arrow It like a portable Microsoft surface table

If they can somehow squeeze out useable battery life (not likely). This could be a very cool device

This really looks great but I don't think I would want it for an ebook reader, primarily because of the LCD screen. But I could see other uses for it.

I'm beginning to think this might actually happen - the first article I was like, "Ooohhh nice, but it'll never make it to production", the second I was like, "Ok, still nice, I like it, I'd use it - but it'll never make it to production", and now I'm thinking, "This BETTER make it to production!"
Reading on an LCD screen doesn't bother me, but I can see a ton of uses for this, reading included.

Meh looks ok, but I would be more interested in the 'possible' Apple tablet because of app store than the 'possible' Microsoft courier.

And I'm the complete opposite. I don't care about the app store, I want Windows because it supports every ebook reading software out there. Tomato, Tomahto. All depends on how you'd use the device, I suppose. I want it mainly for reading (LCD doesn't bother me). I don't play games, I don't do social networking on my mobile device, I don't watch videos on my mobile device. I DO listen to music, but I have my BB for that - it replaced my mp3 player because the sound and interface were so much better than the cheapie mp3 player I had.
