"Fantastic dedicated ereader"4.0 starson by freestewart
Pros: Light and easy to hold.
Touch screen works great and it has a super-fast page refresh.
Battery is eternal.
Cons: Can't read ebooks from Amazon, which means there lots of books you just can't get due to exclusivity deals.
Can't add B&N books via the USB - has to be done over wifi.
The physical page turning buttons are a bit stiff.
Summary: The Simple Touch is such a delightfully well made device. It's simple and it works! It's a million times better than the Nook 1st Edition, and I suspect it's much better than the new Kindles.
My only concern is that I may have chosen the losing side in the ebook wars. Three cheers for DRM lock-in!
