Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."

  1. Carta e-ink, touch screen and physical turn page buttons, USB slot… It all sounds very promising.
    Just surprised that the web page mentions 3 dictionaries only, French, German and Italian.
    Unless additional dictionaries can be added easily I would be reluctant to get this ereader as about half the books I read are in English. Shame really, it seems like a big omission.
