in the slowly growing ebook reader field, the dutch "bebook" was a nice contender when it debuted. but it was way over my price limit, so i didn't even stop to drool. now that they've revealed their edition 2 at CEBIT, the price for the first one is right. it doesn't integrate with any specific book seller, but i consider that a feature (cf. amazon's "mothership" attitude, and sony's windows-only "solution").

U$ 279. that's a whopping U$71 less than my previous top choice, bookeen's cybook gen 3.

they have a large, freely downloadable library of public domain books preformatted to display nicely on the bebook.

and apparently wifi support is coming soon, so they're not dropping support for the first bebook with the announcement of the second one. this link has lots of pictures (many more than the manufacturer's website; figure that).
