It looks so tiny, but I guess that's just because I'm used to the Kindle.

The built-in applications seem like a cool idea.

Competition is good.

Sometimes being an early adopter is hard, you often pay a premium for being on the bleeding edge.

As long as publishers don't start signing exclusive deals on 1 format, I'm happy.

This one is closer to what my better half wants... Mostly screen, minimal buttons.

It says 512 MB of memory.  Isn't that what's onboard the K1.  It sounds like a lot, but I'm glad I have an SD card to expand that because mine would be full.  And I don't see where it says there's memory expansion available.

It's cute.  But it doesn't have Amazon's library or wireless.  :D

Those were the two main selling points for me. I originally got a Sony Reader for Xmas from my dad, but I have a Mac and Sony's software is only PC-compatible, so he returned it and got me a Kindle :)

Reminds me of the first Palm Pilot I had.  The Palm III

I like its appearance -- far less busy than the Kindle.  Soothing color, too.

Maybe this is because I haven't yet made an investment in an ereader, and have no loyalties to protect. :)

But I will say: lack of even the barest physical controls is a non-starter for me.  Stylus for page turning?  Do they think I want to hunch over my books like a praying mantis?

For me, Amazon content trumps most everything.  But more choices becoming available means companies are seeing the viability of the technology - which is a very good thing.  So bring it on!

(As far as the stylus goes, much like my Palm Treo, I'd probably use my finger instead of the stylus if at all possible...but clicking my next page buttons seems a lot easier.)
