Which smart phone can read ebook?
I am looking for a smart phone that can read txt.file (txt.file ebook / news / articles/ long essay)
What should I look for in the feature of a smart phone that can read txt.file ?
I am new in smartphone, but it's consider getting one. Coz my old flip phone battery is dying. And there's very limited available non-smart phone in the market of my city..........(non-smart phone )
smart phone's computer system I know:
iphone (has its own apple system)
most other smart phone use Android
and some using symbian
And can one briefly explain how to transfer txt file from desktop computer to smart phone?

You can get an app to read a txt file with any smartphone.
As for transferring, you can either connect the phone to the computer via usb, email it to yourself, upload it to something like Dropbox, etc.

I think you'd be better off first finding a smartphone that you like to use THEN look for the apps and such. No sense in getting a phone that you can't stand, but is able to read books/text files.

I was curious if somebody could give me a little help on this, too -- by smart phone, I'm assuming you mean Android, Iphone, Windows Mobile phones, correct?
Is there any way to read .txt or .html ebooks on the very cheap and simple older style phones (like the ones sold in CVS, Dollar General, etc. -- cheap, basic disposable phone) ? Many of these phones can receive emails, right? So is there a way to read with them?
I'm vaguely aware that jar applets exist but beyond that, know nothing about these types of phones...and I'd like an easy, no hassle solution if one exists.

As for a smartphone, both Android and iOS can render actual ebook formats quite decently. I don't know why you'd want to suffer reading a plain text file but either OS should be able to handle text files with ease. Personally, I prefer Android over iOS.
