1999 and a desktop computer. a 15 inch CRT screen in all it's glory. In the early 2000's it was Palm's, and Sony Clie... I think back to those tiny screens and cringe...... Then an iPod Touch when they came out, then iPhone.....
Tried eInk briefly with he Sony PRS-300, but found nirvana with the iPad

I was ordering some used books on Amazon one day, and saw a gigantic banner advertising the Kindle. I immediately pulled out my credit card and tried to order it...but it was unavailable in Canada. I wept in frustration, until some dedicated Googling showed me the Sony PRS-505, sold in Sony Styles. As soon as I got home from site, (four anxious days later), I went and shelled out $399 CDN on the best damn thing I have ever owned. The guy at Sony didn't even know what it was. Now three years later, he said that he sold more ereaders than TV's at Christmas!

Sony Reader PRS-500, Jan 2007.
Then Sony Reader PRS-505, Jan 2008.
The latter does it.

Mine was originally the Desktop computer when I was around 15-16 after which I got an Nokia N-Gage QD. I'd install mobipocket and read almost everywhere. On the train while going to college, sometimes during classes (ouch!) et cetera
Then I got a PSP and started reading on that(Bookr) and have been reading ever since. Now I'm reading on my HTC Wizard using a software called Freda. I had refrained from getting an e-ink reader trying to convince myself that I wasn't a real hardcore reader, but I've finally broken down, and just a few weeks ago I was going to get the K2 (when I returned back to US that is). And then Amazon dropped the news on the K3! So I'm going to wait it out and get the K3 instead. I feel this vacation of mine was a blessing in disguise since during this time there was a price drop AND a new Kindle announced. (If it were possible I'd have impulse-bought a K2 and probably felt regretful, but Amazon doesn't ship here internationally so I had to wait it out).
I was just reading "The Alchemist" and suddenly feel that whatever happens, truly happens for the best of all.

The first device I used to read on regularly was my Palm T/X, from about 2005. I was travelling for about 18 months in East Asia and read a lot on that. Fictionwise was my friend. I dabbled on the various Palms I owned before that, but the screens weren't good enough to read for long.
Then onto a Bookeen Cybook Gen 3 for a couple of years and now my Elonex E511EB.
The Gen 3 certainly gave the best reading experience (until it got crushed in a railway train out of Calcutta).
I'm enjoying the Elonex, but looking forward to getting a larger reader with a Pearl screen at some point to complement it.

The prs505 is still my favorite, that and my iPad. I use kobo or borders so I can share books between them. The kindle2 has found a good home, but I'm sorely tempted by the kindle3. I love the size of my Iliad, but I can't be bothered with converting etc for content.

So far I've always used PDAs and Mobipocket. My first was a Handspring Visor Deluxe, then a Sony Clie SJ-22, now a Palm Tungsten E2. My screen is going on the hummer, so I'm seriously considering a Samsung i9000 (aka Galaxy S), mainly because of that Super AMOLED screen.
