A dedicated eBook reader is moot. With iPhones and such if one feels the urge to read on a handheld, it will likely be incorporated into a device they already have. A $400 eBook reader should be a $40 eBook reader imo.

That's what I'm thinking.

Has no one here heard of the Amazon Kindle?

It came out before these revised Sony eBook readers, and so far it's been an absolute hit in the US, even though it costs $400.

One thing which is attractive with these though is that you could carry hundreds of ebooks (and more, depending on the memory) with you, which would be a little hard to do with hard cover/paperback/IRL books.
