... and still no external SD card support.
I have a 4+ GB books collection that I can not put on this, because it's only 2GB.
DRM paranoia getting in the way of a (otherwise) perfect device.

I know I always need to have 4GB of books on my device all at once. Who knows when I'll need the entire library of congress in my backpocket.

I'd LOVE to get this. I use my Sony reader daily, but Amazon's new screen look so much better, and I have no doubt it is a better device technically.

But, can't afford to be vendor locked in. Open format or nothing. drm penalizes the good guys. As an honest buyer, demand an honest product, not one which burdens you by refusing to work on other devices.

I technically preordered. I placed my order on the 28th...

When they mean they're shipping preorders, I'm guessing they meant before that by some margin. Any idea what the official cutoff for the preorders were stated to be?

I've seen a older kindle in person I will admit I like the screen and the way the text pops out. Just wish all my school books were on the kindle store or something instead of them doing their each half ass ebooks websites and apps which are so full of drm and restrictions it's useless. I can tell you I wouldn't mind ditching 20+lbs of books for a kindle, i do it in a heartbeat if I could.
