I think it's great that a company wants to involve a knowledgeable customer base in the development of their new products. It only takes a few minutes to provide them with decent wording for their menus and then a whole new market is opened up for their product. I'll admit the 10% discount isn't very generous though.

I just came accross this:

The 9 inch reader might be interesting for someone looking for a large screened reader. I also like that there is worldwide free shipping on pre-orders.

anyone got one?
You can pre-order me?
I'm not too bad though, a bit of glare due to balding head, but otherwise good battery life and no DRM.

PS: Joking aside, it looks really good! I look forward to seeing how it handles PDF. Is it a full FBReader implementation?

Hmm, PDF and DjVu support - I like!

Is that touch screen suitable for taking notes though? I wonder if it is capacitive or if it needs a little stylus as well (similar to the new Pocketbooks).

Will have to compare this 9" Mreader to the Pocketbook 903.
