I will always prefer the e-ink for dedicated reading, but I have to say this is a very intriguing product. Just did a little reading around on it. It's based on the Android system, and it will get an update soon to upgrade the OS and add an app store. The only negative comments I've seen, which haven't been much, is that it might be somewhat sluggish? Nothing that a good firmware or software update can't fix.
You can't work with MS Office files on it, but you can view them. I would guess the handling of PDF files is likely superior to the e-ink readers as well, in regards to the word flow wrapping.
Viewed as an alternative to the iPad with some limitations, I just might be interested, but more for the web surfing capabilities than the reading capabilities. I wonder if I had both if I could read my purchased e-books on both?
EDIT: Forgot to mention it has Pandora already on it, for music streaming. I have this on my iPod already, and stream free music out to my patio, so I cancelled my XM Radio subscription. Pandora is sweeeet!!
