Decided to search that toy of yours, see more pics and information. Got this:

I believe I have never before seen the Google image search showing a full page of hits, all with the exactly same image! Weird and funny

whs...Well, it works quite well for me but I only wear reading glasses about 50% of the time...mainly when I am tired. If you are interested in one then I would try one out before buying. Do you have a Barnes & Noble in your area?

Yeah, in fact this week we were planning to stop at B&N in Tampa. I wanted it for the wife. She wants to get at her Email wherever she goes. But I am afraid that I have to set it up.

How do you get to your mail. She uses AOL. Can you pull up AOL in their browser? I guess it works on the hotspots in e.g. McDo or Starbucks?

It does come with an e-mail app right out of the box...I use GMail as my main e-mail so I just had to input my GMail info and that's it. After I "rooted" it I got a GMail Widget that I inputted my info and now I use this for mail.

It also does come with a basic browser but I downloaded "Dolphin" browser app\Widget and use that. I tried both browsers and navigated to "aol.com". I selected the "Mail" tab and it took me to the log on screen where I could input a username\email and password.

Note...You have to use a on screen keyboard to input any text on this unit (ie: username and password).

It does have Wireless that you just have to turn on. It does come with a decent manual => http://www.cobyusa.com/files/manuals/MID7015_MN.pdf

If you do get one also get yourself an Micro SD card... bought a 16GB.

Thanks again. That sounds pretty good. Maybe the wife's long nails will be in the way - LOL. Micro SD cards is no problem. I have a few lying around. Will have a look at the manual.
