    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.
