    Sony is trying to suceed where so many others have failed.. create a e-book reader that people will actually use other print.

    Personally, I don't see it happening.

    *plus* I wonder what Sony will do then for DRM for books.. I liked this quote from the article:

    <sarcasm>
    Sony? Scare off consumers with draconian antipiracy technology? Never!

    If I'm reading for leisure, I personally still prefer a nice, hardbound book. :)
    Reading a good novel on a screen just doesn't offer the same kind of experience, in my opinion.
