Ok I lied, there's more than one !

Any comments on how it performs as an ebook reader ?

Can i dock my Nexus to supply 3g data when out of wifi range?

After calibration, do I still have to use a stylis for accurate typing or can I touch type?

And the most important... will it run Angry Birds  :-)

If you're running Froyo on your Nexus you should be able to setup a wifi tether (hotspot) and connect the tablet to that...

I find it really good as an eBook reader - best if it is in a dim room on low brightness as then you get hours and hours of battery, but does do the job fine in other cases.

I find typing fine with my finger, just a little on the slow side. Wouldn't really want to type out anything other than an email on it - but its fine for most things. If you do use a stylus you will find in much easier to type with though.

Not sure about the other two question sorry.

Oh actually just looked up what angry birds was - i doubt it will run this, it struggles with anything more than a basic game - it's really not up to calculating physics and things like that.

I like it. I've been reading on it and find it easy to do. mainly the Kobo reader so far.

Yes. I tether my M001 to my Nexus One all the time. I'm doing it now as work blocks access to the Android Market for downloads.

After calibration, do I still have to use a stylis for accurate typing or can I touch type?
 

I touch type after calibrating with a stylus. The stylus just helps the M001 better interpret what our fat fingers are doing. But if trying to access things VERY close to the edge of the screen you may need to resort to a fingernail or style. Not often....but it happens sometimes.

Haven't tried....but it runs "Robo Defense" really well. That's the same kind of fun.
