I agree John and for the same reasons. I never got it when it was first
announced a while back (or maybe it was someone else).
Sort of like the tablet PC. Great for UPS, FedX, etc. But a wide spread
use/adoption ? Naw...

So I'm supposed to pay $400 to get a reader that'll let me download $10
e-books that I could buy in paperback for $7-8? And I have to pay to
give it power. And I don't get color covers. And the screen resolution
is orders of magnitude worse than a printed page. And the content may
or may not be DRMed out the wazoo.
Is there a single benefit to this other than reduced shelf space?
