I ordered it a few hours after Sean's announcement.

It arrived a few minutes ago.

It works.

However, I was disappointed that it contained no entry for "Wikireader".


Was pleased to see it came with nice alkaline batteries, not those cheap 
carbon ones that eventually fail and destroy the device they came with.

But instead, I put in a pair of "eneloop" rechargeable NiMH batteries, 
1.2 volts.  Those seem to work just fine.

It came with an 8GB microSDHC card.  3.2GB free, plenty of room for more 

Next:  Figure out how to hack in a extra button at the top level that 
takes us to a custom page where we can link in our own personal content...

...and some code to run on my desktop machine, to manage the content of 
these SD cards...

...thanks, guys, there goes another chunk of my copious spare time...
