I'm considering selling my Kindle DX in favor of an Edge. But I have a couple of questions:

- is there a CBR/CBZ application that will work on the color display?
- when capturing notes in the journal, what file format is used? In particular, are these captured in a vector format that I could later import into OneNote so that I could get them converted into searchable text?

Those two would be DX killers in my opinion.

This is an android reader for comics. Not too shabby.

Can that be installed on the eDGe? I believe that currently there is no access to the Android app store.

Download it from the developer and it should work.

An alternate way, for the tecnically savvy, is to setup the Android emulator on PC, download it there and copy the APK install file to the eDGe and install it. Someone posted the (untested) method here: http://groups.google.com/group/entourage-edge-fan-forum/browse_thread/thread/2269084c99926989#.

Roughly the same thing could be done from an actual Android phone.
