Nice, especially the ability to save the reading speed when reading text. I've had a question for a while though and no one's been able to answer it: why the big fuss over supporting Epub? Sure, projects like Gutenberg have Epub titles, but anything from Gutenberg is available in multiple formats. Any Epub you buy from a commercial bookstore is going to be encrypted, and none of these devices support any of the encryption and protection schemes used, so what's the big deal?
