Reading or listening? I need both!

Just read very informative Sony PRS 300 review and while I'm a great Sony design fan there is something more important then design. No mp3 player! No SD-card slot. Why? Sony Internal memory can keep more than 300 e-books but not a single musical file. What If I like to read and listen to the music as I do all the time with my jetBook? I'll tell you what: keep your Sony in your hands and your iPod (or any other mp3 player) in your pocket. What a shame! Why do I have to carry two gadgets instead of one? So far jetBook looks more usefull to me. Probably Sony made just another marketing trick. They started to sell barebones bookreader for $199 and if you need same size bookreader with mp3 player, you'll have to pay more for the additional "luxury" of music listening. So now you have to expect appearance of something like PRS 301 and it will cost, say $299 or $249 depending on internal memory.
Yeah, I've seen that movie too, bro
