Same here. Skiff is tempting as well, though.

but it (like the iPad) has no card slot and a max of 8GB!?!??! I already have nearly 12GB of books and PDFs. That is a poor decision.

Just to clarify - 8.5x11" is the size of the device itself, not the screen. The screen is 10.7" - very slightly larger than that of the iRex DR1000S.

I'm still sitting on a Pre-order for the Que for (hopefully) the end of the month. It will primarily be used by DH. When he goes on Business trips it is usually 2 briefcases of paper and he'd really like to lighten the load. He's tried putting them on his laptop but it just doesn't seem to work out for him.

If he doesn't end up liking it --- well I love to read the Economist on the weekends.

The price makes me want to puke though.

I'll do a review if and when we ever get it.

I guess that would depend on the day of the week, my current mood levels, and whether or not he's picked up his dirty underwear and left the toilet seat down.

But in general

Dear Husband
