I am an ebook fan and like to have the same software across multiple platforms, which is why my preferred reader has been Mobipocket for a couple of years. eReader has been expanding on devices and just launched their Google Android software so now I am going to go all in with eReader. I have been using Shortcovers on my G1, but it requires a data connection to download pages as you read. eReader lets you read content stored right on your device so you can read while on an airplane, traveling in a tunnel, etc. This launch comes on the heels of the Motorola DROID launch and I think that device would be an amazing ebook reader with the beautiful large display.

The Memoir is a full touch-screen phone similar in appearance to the Samsung Behold that has a 5-megapixel camera. The Memoir also supports T-Mobile USA's 1700 MHz 3G wireless data network, but does not have an integrated WiFi radio.
Sprint just issued a press release announcing that the Motorola Q is coming by mid-February as part of their Power Vision offerings. The Sprint Motorola Q is much more attractive than the Verizon offering since you can get unlimited data for as low as US$15 with Sprint while unlimited data from Verizon runs something like US$80 per month. My only hesitation with the Q though is that the next version of Windows Mobile, code-named Crossbow, is scheduled for a 2007 release and this Sprint offering may be coming a bit too late.
