Smile Looking for...

...an ebook reader that could also host jpgs or mp3s for comics and audiobooks. Preferably somewhere within the $200-300 region; and also relatively portable- say coat pocket sized. From what I've seen, something along the lines of the Palm Tungsten E2 might be suitable, but reviews havn't been particularly consistent in praise. I live in England by the way, if this hampers my selection.

Thanks in advance!

Welcome to MobileRead Cookster.

A friend of mine has the E2 and loves it. He does exactly what you want to do, although the comics are a bit of a problem as he has to pan to see all of it.

If you don't mind not having color, the Sony Reader PRS-505 would do for all you want to do.
