E-paper is far better than a generic screen, admittedly, but I find it
less pleasant for some reason. I don't use bookmarks anyway,
remembering page numbers isn't hard. ;)

I've not tried a physical-keyboard smartphone. I use an iPhone,
somewhat grudgingly. I used to use an HTC Hero, but my carrier chose
to keep me on Android 1.5 long after 2.1 was available, and I finally
abandoned it when my phone crashed in the night and didn't wake me up
in time for an exam. ;)

Still, I may some day return to Android's shores...
