The touchscreen works well, but the cool thing is the annotation function allows you to scribble on docs, while the page refreshes only the section you draw on, negating the need to do total page refreshes.

The store and 3G and WiFi access were not quite working yet.
It looks promising. We'll see how great their store is. Amazon's Kindle store wasn't built in a day.
