"Great for what I need. The price could be lower."4.5 starson by famca
Pros: Features lacking on the market leaders, such as the "invisible" touch screen, the annotating capability, the handling of PDF files,also the ePub capability, and MP3 for audiobooks or music,
Cons: The price is a bit high, but prices tend to drop over time. What were these devices just recently, over $400?
Summary: I feel the marketing may be directed at people who already have books and (especially) PDF documents they want to have at hand. So a bookstore, which is most important for the seller of the device, is an afterthought here. I put more value on a touch screen, reflowability (is that a word?) of PDFs, and good contrast.
Available color screens have glare, something e_ink eliminates. You can wait until Mirasol devices incorporate color into a fast-refresh reflective screen , but these will be very expensive, at least at first.
Oh, and lack of wifi or 3G poses more of a problem for the seller of the device. They want an easy way to sell books, and wifi/3G provides that, By the way, wireless devices on the market can't connect to your PC to access the content there, so they have limited usefulness
