  1. I got one of these for my dad, and he loves it. Pixelar now have a dedicated site for their new ereader.

  2. well i just got one of the silver mreaders.
    i must say that first impressions are a good build quality and easy to use menus.The thing that attracted me to this ereader was the large range of formats.
    apparently it has a wifi unit which they are about to link to bookstores and newspapers with .
