more about the Bebook

I've come across an article in The Age, an appraisal of the Bebook that looks at its good and bad points. The writer, Adam Turner, basically concludes that it's overpriced, but that it has some useful features. The comments below his article are very helpful, too.

I still love my Bebook.

Seems to me that the really good thing about the Bebook is that it is that it can download books in a number of formats. We all know that the price of readers will come down, but if you buy one that is not tied to a particular format or retailer, surely that is a win. It's not always about money.

Anonymous, thanks for that comment. After I read the bad review of it in the paper I felt as if I hadn't gone into it enough - is two years of thinking about it enough? - so it's encouraging to read what you said about its not always being about money.
