Editors Didn't Like

  • Somewhat generic feel to the whole device; sluggish compared with Kindle; screen contrast could be better

  • Sluggish performance, Lackluster ergonomics, Can't create notes or bookmarks, Must manually re-connect to wireless networks
  • Even a virtual keyboard is slower than a real one; no ability to redownload already purchased books on the go
  • Kindle and Nook do more with WiFi, Wireless drains battery quickly, Onscreen keyboard slow to use, Usual epaper slowness, No file support beyond ePub and PDF, Bluetooth of limited help
