Ebook readers
OK, so I saw one of these in Waterstones:




And almost had a nerdgasm. They've lovely - they've got a 'paper style' screen, which was always what put me off PDA book reading, and it's a nice form factor.

So, anyone got any experience with ebook readers in general, and specifically the Sony one? (It looks like the best of the bunch that's available in the UK)
And especially regarding ebook availability? Biggest problem with ebook readers is not being able to get stuff I want to read on 'em.

lurkingcat and I were looking at one of these in Bristol a month or two back - I think the two big questions are about the weight and the battery life, neither of which was clear from the example they had on display (fixed to a stand).

Does look lovely, though.

Weight is apparantly 260 grams.
Battery life is apparantly 6800 page turns. Which given 1k pages is a particularly fat book, is good enough I feel.

Holy crap, with a smaller bezel, smaller form factor (A4 is too big to fit in most nice bags!), colour and wireless functionality... I think I would be forced to sew me up a TNG uniform o.O
