I find it strange that version 0.1 of firmware done by people that do not have access to fraction of resources available to manufacturer or OEM distributor has, is more stable than the original firmware ver. 2.02
You're welcome.
I've only used BeBook the first few days after purchasing it.
But I didn't find any instability or technical issues.
For me it's really only about the design.
Why do you consider BeBook over, let's say, Sony 505 or CyBook Gen3?
I only see 1 potential argument: Biggest variety of file formats.
BUT: The only DRM format is .prc. For this, you can use Cybook or iLiad as well.
If you go for the "free" formats, you probably have to convert anyway...
