Yeah the borders are a little large. I wouldn't call them ugly though, at least noway near kindle ugly! They kind of make sense too - stuff printed on paper usually has quite large borders so there's not much point wasting display on the edges.

That looks interesting, but the screen looks like it has some serious problems. There are streaks and other artifacts all over it; especially when changing pages.

Presumably why it's been delayed to 2010.
