Is the Kindle the best ebook reader?

Found 18th Sep 2010
I'm looking to get an ebook reader but don't know much about them, done some googling and there seems to be a lot of difference of opinion, was wondering what my fellow hukdealers thought?
I've heard various pros and cons about the kindle, my main concern was the limited formats available, do you have to get all your ebooks through amazon?

ditto re mr plumberman

i have a sony pocket, absolutely brilliant. extremely easy to add content (found a couple of sites that do legitimate free books, manybooks.net and baen.com) - the result is that i have been introduced to some pretty good authors and i have upwards of a few hundred books on my reader.

just wish i'd bought one sooner.

kindle gets a lot of praise but if it isn't easy to get free content on it, it would put me right off.

the sony pocket doesn't have the bells and whistles that others have (such as mp3 - why the hell would i want to listen to music whilst reading?) but i do not miss having wi-fi or 3g or whatever on my reader - it is just a reader, and a damn good one at it.
