BeBook and large mobi files

I am about to purchase BeBook and have already built a library with Mobipocket Reader and it has already converted all my PDF files to mobi type.

Just thinking what is the max file size of mobi file that would work with BeBook reader or is it so that the size doesn't really matter?

File size is pretty much irrelevent in a Mobi file; it only holds in memory the page that's currently being displayed.

The latest BeBook firmware has dropped DRM-ed (encrypted) MOBI support in favour of DRM-ed Adobe ePub/PDF support. The DRM-free MOBI reader in the new firmware acts like the old one, and you still have the option of using the old MOBI firmware anyway. With the new firmware, converting to ePub is also a possibility. This also should have no problems with large files, providing you convert them to ePub using Calibre, because Adobe's reader only processes one "chapter" at a time (and Calibre adds in fake chapters if needed to keep the processed file sizes withing Adobe's limits).

The ADE viewer that's now being released on all the current devices (BeBook, Opus, etc) appears no longer to have the 260k "flow limit" that the old viewer on the Sony had.

Actually, that's a 300k limit.

What is this ADE viewer? I know Adobe Digital Editions as in Windows application, but it is included in the latest BeBook system as Linux PDF reader, or am I totally lost here?

Yes - the latest BeBook firmware has the ADE viewer, licenced from Adobe. So does the Cool-ER, CyBook Opus, etc.

It replaces the old PDF and ePub viewers with the ADE version. The new PDF viewer does "reflow" as well as portrait and landscape "full screen" modes.

And pretty much all eBook stores (other than Amazon) are switching to ePub as their "preferred" format.

It's the MobiPocket Java-based one if I remember correctly. Havent read all that many mobi books on my bebook due to the fact that it tends to crash more frequently than for instance RTF does. Even though there are some crashes with RTF as well.

so I've mostly used RTF, FB2 and just starting on epub on my bebook.

So this would imply that it is possible to use MobiPocket code without DRM support. Then you can wonder why Bookeen does not do that?
