Sony have brought out (in America only unfortunately, but coming soon to the UK) a book reader tablet. Which should have been around 5 years ago. I saw this originally on a news story about Japan some 2 years ago and registered for interest with Sony. So finally a useful email mechanism as well! The only thing which worries me is the fact that they may tie it to their own paid downloads only. I have loads of Gutenberg electronic books which would be perfect for this.
I FINALLY read through all of the documentation for the Sony Reader in the last post. You can put your own documents (as a PDF file) and JPEG Images (presumable converted to Black and white, as there isn't a grey scale) on to the thing as well. So all I need to do is convert all my Gutenberg Text documents to PDF using some kind of free PDF converter!
