Also I know you've mentioned TTS does not work for epub. What formats does TTS work on?
The Pocket PRO supports about 12-14 total formats. One is Adobe Digital Editions. I agree with you that Open Format is a real blessing as a lot of the smaller publishers (like environmental papers and such) are not available in the more well-known formats. Having LIT and DOC and HTML simply open up more of the world of publishing to you.
Actually, the Pocket PRO's Text-To-Speech does work beautifully with the pdf eBooks that Adobe has and the Pocket PRO does TTS on TXT.
We are investigating what other formats the TTS supports. I will post.
The key thing is that we get this post back to its basic premise: Astak has released a 5 inch eBook Reader for $199 that is infinitely stronger and more featured than any other 5 inch out there. This has the Epson Controller with 400MHz processor for very fast page turns, 8 level grey scale, Adobe Digital Editions, displays 12-14 formats and 20 languages, has a relaceable, rechargeable battery, has SD card slot to 16GB, comes in six colors, and has the pricing that MobileRead Forum people have stated they want.
I hate to see this post sway away from this point. This is a terrific device that really is pretty incomparable for its size. I had hoped that MobileRead Forum people would really embrace this. THIS is NEWS!!
What I would welcome is a comparison of the Sony PRS-300 with the Pocket PRO... being they now cost the same. Sony has the brand name... but Astak (in my opinion) has an unbeatable device out!!
