Not to be too picky, but the EB-1150 does not support *ANY* open file formats; it doesn't even support any proprietary file formats except for its own IMP format. Everything other type of file must be converted first, and you have a few routes available to go on that one.

FictionWise sells some non-encrypted e-books in the IMP format (they call it OEP 1/2 vga); BlackMask has converted at least part of their catalog. Some vendors, such as Renaissance Books, sell plain HTML books that you can convert.

That is my biggest gripe about the device - not being able to load an HTML or RB file directly onto a media card and loading it up.
