Submission + - good PDF reader device with internet browsing? 2

ranjix writes: Hello everybody. I ask the collective intelligence to help me with this one. I need a handheld device which would allow me to read ebooks and/or browse the internet while actively and intensely laying in the hammock (and yes, I do have a hammock in my mom's basement). I'll try to sum the basic requirements: (good) PDF reader (and ebooks of whatever sort), WiFi connectivity and Internet browser, screen minimum 4.5", readable in sunlight etc, fairly responsive, at least 4-5 hours battery. Obviously I looked at the usual suspects: Kindle/Amazon tries to grab one into the proprietary formats and their own network (while other ebook readers don't really browse the internet), laptops/netbooks are pretty hard to hold, and the UMPC arena seems a hodge-podge of "to be released" (Viliv S5? Aigo whatever?) with "seriously expensive" (Sony, OQO) or plain "we recommend you don't buy" (Samsung Q1Ex). Is there anything else I could use in given circumstances?
Appreciate,
ranjix
