It looks quite impressive, it's amazingly thin. The screen is sharp and clear and readable even in sunlight. Kinda pricy at $359.00, but nice if you can afford it. No doubt it will get cheaper over time as they become more mass produced. Follow the link for lots more photos, videos and information.
I suspect that this is going to be the future of books.
Of course, I want one... but only when they get cheaper!
