Ebook READER for Aussies

At long last a "low" price range ebook reader is available direct in Australia.
Called the ECO Book Reader....Seems to be much the same as the Be-Book Reader...only with many extra features...advertised selling price = AUD $449
But hey, why not watch the video. http://www.ecoreader.com.au/video.asp

Well done and concise review. Feel like I would (and have) said the same things, the one addition item I'd add is the sub-micro menu font size.
