I was thinking the same thing, HarryT, but I'd suggest testing out the buttons to make sure that they aren't a big deal to press. The 500 is a bit tight on its buttons, but the 505 is a good deal better there. Of course, the iLiad has that lovely
flip bar which I consider to be the easiest of all to use. Of course the trade-off on it is that it's relatively expensive.
While the iLiad's battery life isn't as long as the Sony Reader it's such a huge step up from a Cliē that I would not
expect it to be even a slight issue.
