    All this custom software and effort. It all seems a bit ambitious, especially in hindsight.

    What if another approach was taken:

    - supply a tablet with no software at all!

    ...and expect hackers to assemble the screen and load software themselves.

    At the end of the day all I want is a tablet with a PixelQi screen for PDFs. I don't need custom software. In fact, I'd prefer things to be generic so I know what to expect. Was there much need to customise software? Focus on getting the hardware support.

    Have any hardware manufacters supplied such a kit to the home brew crowd to save a few pennies? I'm not sure how much self assembly might save but it's just a thought.

    I think I'm gonna get a NookTouch now; ~$170 but a compromise on goals
