It may just be me, but I still prefer a book.

I don’t have to pay $400 for a reader. I don’t have to recharge a book. When I’m done, I can loan it to a friend, or resell it. I can skim a book. A book is still portable. If my book gets stolen, it doesn’t bother me so much. I can highlight and take notes in a book with ease.

Sure, the Kindle has some advantages, like being able to get a new book anywhere, butI don’t see a tablet like this becoming popular let alone overtaking the real thing, no matter how good.

I think this is more for the person who travels alot and doesn’t want to carry a heavy book or doesn’t want an actual book cluttering up the house.

I saw the pricetag when this came out and I laughed. It is a very cool concept, and I’ve looked at ebooks before, but there’s no way I’d pay more than $100 for a good one. I think the wireless is a nice touch for those that can afford it.
Hopefully this will bring down the cost of Sony’s eReader, which also uses the digital ink. I might pick one of those up it they go below $100. (currently at about $200+ on ebay). Soon enough. I’m definitely not in a hurry for one. I’m glad to see ebooks picking up speed though.
