ooooh, you got an EE. *envy*

but only a little envy because, ace as the EE range is, I'm holding out for an iLiad instead.

That looks lovely, and I can understand why you would choose that over something with a keyboard :)

it's the eInk display that really interests me on the iLiad. I want it for reading, 'cos I often struggle with holding books open - it's only a little effort, but it's sustained and can get quite painful after a while.

The Kindle has an eInk display also. Reviews from people who've actually gotten hold of the thing are very positive about the display.

The Kindle is rubbish, comparatively. Insane DRM and stupidOS and DAMN-IT'S-UGLY problems aside, the display is only first-gen eInk (the iLiad uses 2nd gen and will shortly be on 3rd gen), smaller and only has 4 shades of grey to the iLiad's 16. The Kindle's waveform (the voodoo used to redraw eInk displays) is pretty lame, even compared to the Sony Reader, and it's nothing on the iLiad's.

Once eInk breaks the 200dpi barrier (currently 160), I'm having one.

It all sounds very interesting. I'd really like to see an eInk display at first hand.

Yeah, me too. Can't find one in any of the shops in norwich though. There are some impressive bits of video on yootoob, which are worth a look.
