It doesn’t have the biggest display, nor is it the most colorful. But it does have a highly usable and well-integrated LCD screen (running Android), and its ability to flow content browsed anywhere on the Web to the e-reader gives this model a unique edge over the competition. Add in the company’s announced partnership with Borders for acquiring content, and this is one of the most promising models I’ve seen.
