Question Any word on a Sony update for the 505?

Just curious. I do enjoy the PDF reflow. However, I am interested as to what improvements are in the pipeline......

I think it was in the summer of 2008, no? I have:

Verson 1.1.00.18040

So, curious if any further updates are in the near future?

There is a 1.2 available. It should prompt you to download it when you open your library.

I have not yet installed the last update -- which means I cannot yet read ePub books on my Sony 505. Of course, the big inhibitor is that I have not yet installed the Sony software!

Forgive my ignorance... but i thought 1.1.00.18040 was currently the latest? When I check for updates it can't find any (i.e. fully updated)... and checking at the sony eSupport site shows only 1.1.00.18040 available?

That's right. 1.1 is the US firmware; 1.2 the European firmware. There's no difference in their capabilities.

Mukoan--

You can add a clock to the screen by using Jeff Elkin's excellent customizer--available here:

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/showthread.php?t=27177

I highly recommend both the clock and the uniform fonts from the customizer.
