Potential Cybook review (updated)

I'm negotiating with the fine folks over at Bookeen in France to get a demo unit of the Bookeen Cybook.

The Cybook is an eBook reader with a 10" diagonal display capable of 800 x 600 resolution at 100 dpi. This handheld hardware can display various eBook formats:
The Cybook is the world's first true open multi-format e-book reader; it supports many e-book formats like PRC, PDB, HTML, RTF and TXT. No more printing, with the Cybook you can read all the digital documents you want."

You download your digital content onto the Cybook using the included USB sync cable or the built in 56k modem. The Cybook is also capable of web surfing, e-mail, playing MP3's and editing Word or Excel documents. The unit is currently priced at $738. To puchase the Cybook from Bookeen, click the post title. I'll be sure to update this site once I have final word that a demo unit is on the way.

UPDATE: It's official. I have a demo unit on it's way and will have the opportunity to use it until mid-January. Thank you Bookeen, I'm looking forward to it!
