3. What is the battery life of these devices?
Lastly, I am interested on the above as purely e-book reader for PDF Non-DRM & DRM types. If anybody here knows of a cheaper type that could read both, please let me know. Dealextreme is the only website I know that will ship to my country (Philippines) for free. Any tip is greatly appreciated. Thanks a million.
1)The batteries are soldered in so in theory not user replaceable, however if you can use a soldering iron then it's not a difficult job.
2)SmartDevices do not sell batteries as spare parts so you would have to source your own e.g. ebay, dx etc - cost ???
3)How long is a piece of string? Users may be able to give an informed opinion on this in due course as they have only been around for approx 8 mths, but as a guess 1-2 years depending on care/usage.
