update

I'm a member on another forum. A number of people over there have one of these Airpanels. One of them figured out how to hack the firmware updates to allow you to flash either the WinCE 3.0 firmware or WinCE 4.1 firmware. I've successfully flashed both firmwares. I prefer 3.0, but the 4.1 firmware does have its points.

I've also gathered all the files needed for flashing each firmware into a pair of ZIP folders, and included a readme file.

Someone politely suggested that I post a link to the other forum.

The instructions and the collected files are in the 4th post from the bottom.

Mobipocket Reader can be downloaded from here. You want the one with for Arm CPUs. Also, you should try v4.9 before v4.8 because it supports a couple extra features. BTW, there is a free activation code for MobiReader: "JWNLMXVU". Without it some features will expire.

You can also have MSReader as well as Ereader. Here is a good source of (mostly) compatible software:

Sorry to resurrect an oldish thread, but did you flash the Airpanel 100 or 110? I'd love to be able to read mobi and pdf files on a 110, and there are a few on ebay at a very decent price.

I've only flashed the Airpanel 100. Hacking the v110 requires XP Pro.

What's wrong with the 100? I'm quite happy with mine.

Well, after years of reading ebooks (first .lit on iPAQs, then plucker on various Palms, then Mobipocket on Palms and Nokia phones), I finally caved in and got a used Nokia 770 to read PDF files, as I have lots of old tubes and electronic manuals to read which are scanned PDFs and I need a large display. The only problem is, the 770 sucks for reading them: the default pdf app is very user-unfriendly (zoom in, and turning a page is a 4-step operation including recentering it) and super-slow with scanned PDFs; evince crashes a lot (I'm on os2007) and it's almost unusable for scanned PDFs.

So I checked back here after a long time, read this thread, and thought the Viewsonic might work. Only the 100 seems a bit slow for scanned PDFs. If it isn't so, well I won't need a 110, even though there are a few ones for 70$ which looks like a very OK price, even including shipping to Italy.

Kind of a longish OT reply, sorry.

Lately I've been using my Airpanel 100 to read PDFs. It's quite usable for scanned PDFs as well as text only PDFs. While the screen isn't fingertip friendly(mine are too big), it is possible to use a fingernail to scroll the page. Screen refresh is slow compared to a PC, but it's still faster than Eink.

I would not recommend it for image heavy or multi column PDF, however. The images are rendered one at a time, and repeatedly scrolling up and down on a single page might be frustrating.

Instead of the v110, you might consider the Airsync v210. It has almost identical hardware, but no need to hack it. The best way to find one on Ebay is to search for "airsync", and then save the search.

Thanks, will do. Meanwhile I solved one of the problems that are bugging me with reading PDFs on the 770: using pdfcrop I can use the "Fit Width" zoom, and change page with a single click. Should stop by here more often.

One thing I forgot to add

The Adobe software I am using can also handle reflowable PDFs. It cannot reflow every PDF, only the ones already tagged. It's still a cool feature, though.

I would recommend avoiding the Airpanel 100 for the time being. In 3 months, I've had 3 die on me. All had the same failure - the battery charging circuit. Wait until I know for sure that Viewsonic will repair them. Note: This is not the fault of the seller; the devices are simply old.

You should also avoid the v110 and v150 unless you feel up to hacking it. Go for the v205, v210, or v240 instead.

Also, the Viewpad 1000 runs Windows XP, unlike the Viewpad 100.
