My first impression of the device - it's a Palm IIIx with 1000 times 
more storage, but poorer connectivity and fewer applications.

I have an electronic subscription to a couple of science-fiction 
magazines which I currently read on my old Palm IIIx. It's showing its 
age so I have been looking for a replacement for a while now. The 
Wikireader (with its sunlight-readable screen and AAA batteries) would 
fit this category as soon as an e-book reader application is available. 
Some other PDA applications like a calculator and a memo pad would be 
nice but I can live without them.

If/when an e-book application is developed, it would be nice to have an 
SD-card image of the Project Gutenberg archive.

I also have a question - what happens to equations and graphs in 
Wikipedia articles (e.g. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bessel_functions)? 
Are equations rendered graphically or are they only shown in markup 
language? Are SVG images supported?
