Ebook reader with calendar/address book
I have been happily reading books on my Palm Lifedrive for some time, but it's time to update and Palm is not an option. I have considered getting a smartphone that I can read on, but I don't really want to run down my phone battery by reading - I'm very capable of running the Palm down - and a slightly bigger screen would be good. So a dedicated ebook reader seems the way to go. But ideally I would like to be able to keep my diary and address book on it too - I know I can store that stuff in my phone, but am I the only person in the world who wants to look at my engagements /while/ I am talking on the phone?
Anyway, my question is, can I get an ebook reader what will do this? Seems like the Pocketbook 301 plus may (does it have address book?). Do any other models have this option? I see some newer models use the Android operating system - can you add apps?
Thanks for any input.

If you want the same functionality that you had with your Palm, then a small tablet would probably meet your needs better than a dedicated e-book reader.

I remember that at least one of the new 9" reader do have a contacts application. Not sure if it's the MBook due Nov 2010 in UK.
