BeBook/Hanlin - 1 month review

I have been using my BeBook ebook reader for one month now, so I thought it was time for a first review. In this post I will write about the BeBook, what you can use it for, its features, possibilities, limitations and quirks and give you some advice before you buy an ebook reader. I have used a lot of its features, but not all of them and I also encountered some of the limitations and quirks. I will probably post an extra review in a couple of months when I had the time, the need or felt the desire to explore the rest of the features and possibilities. By the way, I love my BeBook. Read the rest of my review at my blog:
http://blog.johan-mares.be/ict/gadge...-month-review/

Spoiler for my review: for the tens of thousands of freely available ebooks and the ebooks you create yourself (customized PDF is my favorite) the BeBook is a joy to read and it is very addictive (you have been warned). For technical ebooks the conclusion is more mixed: I estimate that some 60-70% of those are readable, varying from barely to good, but not nearly as good as customized PDF, MOBI or EPUB. So if you have lots of technical ebooks (howto, config files, ebooks, emagazines, documentation, courses, manuals, ...) in a variety of formats (PDF, CHM, TXT, RTF) and publishers, chances are that you will be able to read a lot of them on your BeBook. If all your ebooks are from the same publisher, you better ask someone, on this forum for example, to try them out first.
