Sony Reader

Apparently Sony announced a new version of their ebook product at CES last week. I saw the story pop up in the usual places (digg, slashdot). I'm pretty jazzed about this. From the articles it appears that it will indeed be on sale in the United States for between $300 and $400. I have gazed longingly at the Sony Librie but paying almost $500 to buy it through Dynamism only to get a device with a Japanese keyboard has been kind of a non-starter for me.
