I am considering purchasing a 900 but I have a question: are the free books from Google Books included in the store that is accessible from the 900? One of the things I like about my wife's Kindle is its ability to download free public domain/CC content on the go. Since the 900 does not have a web browser, I will be limited to the Sony store. If I can't access free PD/CC material from this store, the utility of the device for me is significantly reduced (I'm not going to pay 2 bucks for Sony's poorly edited 'classic' titles).

No, not from the reader itself, I'm afraid, you have to either use the Sony Reader Library software or use Google directly from a computer.

The only thing that you are limited to Sony on is wifi. You can download from several ebook sources, including many public libraries. I used the wifi one time and I can get a book quicker via computer. And that includes side loading to my 900. My 22" monitor has a lot more real estate than my 900 to view the store page.
