Shows you what Sony thinks of us early adopters, eh?

This is slightly off topic - does anyopne know how I can download the Adobe DE1.5 installer, instead of haivng to use their web installer?

Wish Sony would hurry up and post the file - it is 10:23 over here in the UK!

I have been told adobe de for ebook-devices requires at least 128mb ram and that is why it will never run on the 500.

Cracing?

Cracking or cranking --- I'm with you! Kovid, with your libprs500/calibre dynamite software, you've played no little part in getting this huge epub/pdf ball rolling.

However, we MobileReadians should bankroll you and coddle you, but lock you in a room until you emerge with your new baby, Calibre with html2epub!

Mobileread again proves to be the no. 1 source for information... thanks for this nice breaking story!

But I'm so envious, I want DE for my iLiad too...

how well does epub do, compared to lrf?
Editing possibilities? speed? image styling?

You can download Digital Editions and check the sample books. However, we don't know yet how it will be implemented on the Reader.

Can't yet. The firmware is not yet available. But we are hoping sometime today.
