This is what you want: http://www.irextechnologies.com/irexdr1000 (iRex
iLiad)
Even has a model big enough for letter sized papers (think PDF textbooks
and journal articles), supports annotation with a stylus, and runs
Linux. Unfortunately, you can buy a decent laptop for the same price, so
at the moment, it's just geek bling.
