Readers with freehand notation capabilities

As much as I am impressed by the new Amazon Kindle 3, it does not meet one of my main requirements - freehand notation on documents. I know there are others on Mobileread who share the same interest, so I want to start a thread which focuses on readers offering freehand notation capabilities.

Here's a start - others are invited to flesh out the info:

Sony-PRS 600 (6")
Sony-PRS 900 (7.1")
Freehand notation possible on all formats which can be viewed (PDF, txt, RTF, etc). When in zoom mode, notations are not possible.
Expansion: MMC/SD/SDHC, Memory Stick Pro Duo
Text-to-speech: no

Onyx Boox 60 (6")
Bebook Neo (6")
Freehand notation only possible on PDFs.
Expansion: SD/SDHC
Text-to-speech: yes?

Hanvon n518 (5")
Freehand notation possible (formats?)
Expansion: SD card
Text-to-speech: yes

I'm sure there are other machines out there as well that offer freehand notation capabilities, I am just not aware of them at the moment.

I think the various IRex readers support free-hand annotations. But I have never used one.

The DR1000 and iLiad do - but only for PDF files. The DR800 doesn't support annotation.

Hanvon Ereaders (as far as I know) only have notation for TXT files, but have nice option for immediate export of notations and hand writings in RTF format.

Onyx has a separate note/scribble feature as well. so you can use it as a notepad ,even adding more "pages" to existing notes. these are exportable.

The Sony and iRex devices also have a "notepad" facility.

With the latest updates the Hanvons (n518 and n526 and the new ones) also support notations in pdfs which can even be saved in the pdf itself as far as I understood from several reviews.
