…when I see something like coming out soon.
The SONY Reader (that’s the official product site, with specs):
Apparently they’ve managed to resolve the problems of screen-reading (low-res, flicker, backlighting, etc.), by something they call “e Ink,” which provides relatively high contrast, no backlight, no screen flicker and good resolution.
Plus, It also appears that SONY has ditched the digital rights management (DRM) for this reader (the previous one was proprietary). This one appears to let you choose from among different formats, allowing you to read downloaded web pages, PDF files, and more.
Once things like this start becoming as regular as iPods, being a PDF publisher is going to be a Very Good Thing indeed.
