Thankyou so much for your reply.

So my assesment of the UK dedicated ebook reader market right now (and please let me know what I'm missing/misunderstanding), is...

Sony PRS-505 - available now for 180
PRO's: Great basic device, good screen/battery life, great design/casing
CON's: Can't handle large collections easily, slow refresh, no internet.

COOL-ER Reader - available now for 180
PRO's: Same tech as 505, but faster
CON's: Casing is plastic/may be a bit flimsy, unproven company.

BeBook Mini (5" screen) - Coming Soon
BeBook2 (6" screen, 3g, touch) - Coming Soon

Does that cover everything new available direct from the UK right now? and does anyone have any anticipated release dates/price points for the coming soon's.

Given the choices, what's everyone's general opinion... buy sony/cool-er now or wait for the BeBooks.
