piranha: red origami crane (Default)
i am getting really close to buying an e-book reader now. no, not amazon's newest toy (i don't want my reading tied to amazon).



the bookeen cybook gen3 is the latest shiny thing i am liking.

even if their website works like crap (the links across the top all error out; one has to go to the site map to access those pages, *sigh*). even if there is too much use of the davinci code in their promo shots. :)

about as high and wide as a MMPB, much thinner, and only half as heavy, 6" tall screen, 600x800 resolution (166 lpi), it uses e-ink (which means the battery lasts a very long time), it can display 4 levels of greyscale, landscape mode, it doesn't do its own proprietary crap (it can read text, html, pdf, palmdoc, gif, jpg, png, and mobipocket, as well as play mp3), it has a dictionary lookup function (your own downloadable dictionaries), it can change font family and size (your own downloadable fonts), zoom for images, it can bookmark, it can use intra-document hyperlinks, how much content it can hold is only limited by the size of the SD memory card you plug into it, USB slave connection.

that's not perfect (i have quite some list for my perfect e-book reader), but we're finally talking.

U$350.-

want.
