The question is how useful branding is for a device that disappears
entirely in the computer.

How many transparent laptops are out there?  ;)

We did consider this for the USB readers, but the final price would
have been rather high -- and it did not seem useful to bind that much
money in stock that you might never sell.

That is why we currently don't have branded readers and why I don't
expect us to have them very soon -- although the idea admittedly is
nice and it would be cool to have Fellowship readers.
