That does look interesting. I'm having fairly good luck with the netbook I bought from Pamida last December; maybe I can get my reader there, too!

If I understood what the first reviewer to whom you linked was saying, this device can handle Kindle, Nook, and Kobo capabilities. That would be a selling point for me: I'll be looking for the most flexible pad possible, with access to as many vendors as possible.

Cory,
I still haven't actually gotten to see or use the NOVEL. I read most of all the links I found, and it may make sense to wait a bit. There are rumors that the company will make the device less "locked" and make it easier for add-on apps or hacks. You need to have WiFi to make it convenient to use to download books, etc. There were some complaints in reviews about the pressure required to use the resistive screen sensors compared to the more expensive capacitive systems in other units.

Pamida's price here is $179. Apparently it is available for as little as $129 at some sources.

We have purchased printers and an ACER laptop from Pamida with no serious problems..although my son got a Brother Multifunction printer and it croaked in a few days. Brother replaced it with a rebuilt printer which has so far worked well for him.

People with near zero technical ability and a desire only to read books on such a device might be better off with a Kindle. This device appears to have some other uses if you have any computer savvy.
