Clad in white with a matte-finish it sports a Kindle-esque QWERTY keyboard for which makes use of the on board onboard diary and scheduler, but will also let you tweak Office documents on the fly.
Naturally it uses e-ink for the display. The battery's good for 7,000 page turns (seeing you through more than a few Andy McNabs).
It supports all your standard EPUB, PDF and TXT formats - as well as the aforementioned MS Office files and PEG, BMP and GIFs for those who like their stories with pictures in all their eight-shade e-ink glory.
Audiobooks are handled by the built-in speaker or headphone jack. Like the Kindle 2 it packs 2GB of storage for around 1,500 books. If that's not enough for your voracious book reading you can top up with an SD card.
