This looks (from the video, at least) to be a great use of several different technologies, integrated into one unit. The voice is also way better than the Book Port, the ebook audio-reader one of my friends favors.
I was at first a little disappointed with the screen size, but Intel did scalable fonts right, and it looks like it's without the artificial size limits of Kindle, Sony Reader, and others. And of course, the screen isn't the primary mode of output.
Alas, unless I get an evaluation copy, I'm unlikely to get one. I can afford $300 for an ebook print reader but not $1500. But then again, I'm not as visually handicapped as some, and I know that this will have a market. Way to go, Intel!
