Pretty good review of the Reader

I saw this this morning and thought I should share with the forum here:

http://www.denguru.com/2007/01/24/so...a_real_winner/

The author of the review seems to understand what the Reader is for, instead of looking for a PDA that displays books.

Except Tom blew it on the screen description. He called it a non-backlit LCD, and made several references to it as an LCD. He totally missed the whole e-ink concept.

Too bad, it was otherwise a great review.

He may have missed the technical of e-ink but at least he understood the basic of the reader itself. He didn't dismiss the entire thing because it couldn't be read in the dark. It was more of a review as a book substitute (which it is) and not as a tablet (which it isn't).
