I never liked the original Kindle or the second generation. Kindle DX caught my attention with the native PDF support and 9.7″ screen. Now, the device that I think can compete and maybe even kill Kindle, if they market it right, is Touch Book made by a startup Always Innovating.
What separates this netbook from the others is the detachable keyboard and touchscreen capability. When I first read an article about this netbook on Popular Science magazine first thing I thought of was that this thing will make a great e-reader. It comes with PDF reader and e-Reader that supports multiple e-book formats including ePub and non-DRM Mobipocket.
