I still cannot help but wonder, after reading the handson preview, if the Sony Reader isn't more suited to what I need for reading. I spoke of my preference for the Sony Reader before. Simply said though, I do not need to draw on the screen with a stylus and as nice as sixteen colors of grey are...four are enough for me. Then there is the size. Experiences from my REB1100 tell me that that screensize is just fine, and the Sony Reader ought to be comparable.
I think a lot depends however on Sony indeed allowing home content on the device, something which remains unclear to this date.
