A POLL!!!!!!

VOTE for Cybook and iPhone!!! Just kidding

I use my Cybook for reading when I´m at home or when I travel by train.

I use the iPhone
- in the bus
- in the car when I´m caught up in a traffic jam - yes, I know, I shouldn´t, it might be too dangerous
- in the supermarket while queuing
- in boring meetings (pretending to check Emails. This can be quite dangerous, too, especially when the meeting´s mod suddenly aks you "What´s your opionion?" and you´re about to say "The butler did it!")

You should add "Symbian Phone or Blackberry" - those are also Mobipocket platforms.

I would put those under "iphone/pda"

They may be mobipocket, but they aren't dedicated bookreaders...

I have these things that are made of a carbon-based storage system that I read on, but are not listed. Could you ask one of the moderators to add them? They're called just "books..."

Nah, see I've always given the mods credit for being more intelligent than that!

I voted for the Sony 505 (cuz I asked Zelda) and for "They haven't made the one I want" because the Sony doesn't fulfill my desire to read any and all ebooks that are available on one device without going through conversion gyrations. I'm still waiting for a decent tablet or slate device with a screen that's large enough to read everything comfortably, runs on Windows or some OS that lets me use any and all reader software, isn't too heavy, and has a decent battery life.

desertgrandma, I'm new here. I thought you could only vote for one device. I voted for the PRS505 but I also use my PSP and bookR. If you are keeping any off the record counts, please add 1 to PSP.

Thanks, kenmark
