So at a quick glance, what you are getting here is just a basic ebook reader, nothing fancy or exceptional! No need for drum rolls, whistles, or bells. What you see is what you get!
This is as basic as it gets guys and gals! I have to say that based upon my knowledge of the subject at this point, If I were in the market for an ebook reader, I would put my money on the Amazon Kindle, the Sony digital reader, or the iRex iLiad 2nd edition …in that order.
I probably would not look any further than that at this point because price-wise, I would be getting a lot for my money compared to the others.
…and just in case you have not heard the latest news, as of yesterday July 8, 2009, the Amazon Kindle 2 is $299…another $60 drop.
…and I might as well go ahead and make the prediction, it’s going to get better. This is just the beginning guys. The ebook reader market is off and running.
