  1. Still too expensive in my book. Not to mention, I have dropped books way more than once. NONE of them ever broke, needed replacement, went out of warranty or had the batteries go dead.

    3G accessibility is nice, of course if there is no 3G available, well, what good is that?

    Nope, still to me, until this thing is a LOT more like a fully-connected-to-the-internet thing as well as a lot cheaper, BOOKS just cannot be beat.
