Does your Gadget Pass the Shoe Test?

Gizmodo reckons that the new reader by Plastic Logic (unveiled at Demo Fall 08 conference in San Diego) could be the "Kindle killer":
Here is what the clunky Amazon Kindle should have been since the beginning: a simple, ultra-sleek full-page 8.5-inch by 11-inch electronic book and newspaper reader with a flexible plastic touchscreen, Wi-Fi connectivity, and the ability to read regular Office documents without conversion of any kind.
Better still:
According to the company, the reader is tough enough to resist getting hit with a shoe, which is exactly what I wanted to hear because that's how I test the toughness of my devices. Hitting them with shoes and/or toasted baguettes with butter and apricot jam.
I am consumed with desire for this ebook reader already.

Paper books can resist being dropped, kicked and stepped on. And they are Rm30-50 each.
