I'm slightly excited about Sony's new PRS-300 ebook reader. Its out soon and goes for 199 dollars which is about 150-160 pounds. I expect after a while it will drop down closer to 100 pounds which is the ideal price for a ebook reader in my view. You don't get a lot for your money, no Bluetooth, Wifi or even a memory expansion slot. But with 440meg on board and a 5 inch display, its not going to be a bad general purpose ebook reader. I also hear Sony's play PDF's, HTML and Text files without any extra conversions.
