I have the black Pandigital Novel e-reader

My loaner unit arrived this morning. Is anyone jealous yet?

Is there anything you'd like me to try?

Well, the obvious; responsiveness, battery life, Kindle for Android.
Maybe a listing of which video formats/bitrates it supports.

Forgive my ignorance but I know very little about this device. Time for me to Google.

Would be interested in how it compares in real life to the white one. The hardware's a bit different isn't it?

Nate, could you do a basic compare and contrast between the White and Black one? Which do you prefer? I don't care about upgrading the internal memory. Also, the single speaker wouldn't bother me unless it is much worse than the dual speakers.

That will be in the review, but they've asked that the review be embargoed until 18 August (the official launch date).

That's too bad, since I leave the U.S. on Wednesday. My only question is, is it lighter in weight than the White? I saw a rumor online that it would be, but was wondering. I have the white and really like it, but it is too heavy so I plan to return it tomorrow.

If people could read that way, that would be awsome. You'd never lose it, wouldn't have to worry if your pockets were big enough to hold the thing. And certainly, it would make wireless purchase and download, a universal requirement.

Morning Nate,
Please do a comparison for all of us "white owners" if possible.
Of course most of us have hacked our way into making this a mini IPad etc but still a blow x blow would be nice.
As far as you know will the white one just go away once the inventory is gone??
