Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I love how thin the device is. It easily fits in my handbag! I take it everywhere with me becasue you just never know when you will get a chance to read or listen to music.
Bad points:
When I tilt it just slightly (if I am doing something whilst reading which I do a lot being a mother of two) the page changes rotation.
