Wow. I never got around to seeing the first video, but I did view this. My jaw dropped and bounced. What *really* excited me was the contrast of that screen. The video captured it *perfectly*. As I said in my jk report, it's the best screen I've seen on a handheld. Roger Sperberg should go watch this video -- David Rothman too -- and they'll become even more excited about the prospects for ebooks on the 770!

Yes Mike the screen is amazing, and I think it should be really good for ebooks. The zoom hardware buttons should be useful for that also.
I was thinking about how can we use the fingers more accurately for those kind of applications ( to scroll pages ) to zoom in and out, mail portions of a text, do small annotations and so on. Some nice gesture engine should be made for it =)
But again : if the device can run doom at this huge speed, using 60% of cpu, then it shouldn´t be a problem to run a ebook reader with some amazing touchscreen features!
Again, I'll still amazed with the screen, even after some month using it. Just to have an idea : using my 17" flat monitor from dell, with 1280x1024 res, I need to reduce the 800x480 image to 40% to see "the real size", and avoid small details on interfaces!
