Actually, it did say that that package was for WinCE 3.0, not 2.11. So the fact that I couldn't get it to work doesn't mean much.

Still doesn't help, though....we're going to need one for Win CE 5.0 and above.

Found this link and thought I would put it here for anyone if they wanted to try it:

http://reeed.ru/en_prog_alreader_pda.php
Found the Home page for Alreader here
Extra backgrounds and fonts for Alreader2 can be downloaded here. Don't know about the fonts, haven't tried them but I like the extra backgrounds. For some reason I couldn't zip the 480x800 backgrounds with the others so they are here

It's for Alreader2 which is originally a Russian program for reading ebooks. I loved the windows mobile version of it. Once I get WinCe on my Smartq7 I am going to give it a go.

The bottom of the page has WinCe download mips and arm and seems to be an english version of it. For WinCE 4.2 and above.

Edit: I have since successfully tried the WinCE version on Smartq7 and can recommend it. Have added some other stuff I have found.

Just tried Manga MeeyaCE and it was in chinese. Comic Reader Mobi is $9.99 and I'm not quite ready to shell out the cash for WinCE apps that may or may not work. MeeyaCE looks like a very nice comic reader though. If I could get it in english, it would definately fill my comic needs. I'm still suffering trying to get a major WinCE ebook reader to work.

I actually have Comic Reader Mobi for iPhone, and it is by far the best comic reader for that platform. I emailed him about my hesitation with buying the WinMo version, since it may or may not work. He told me that if it didn't work he could give me a refund. This is what he told me, anyway. You may want to email him first. But as far as mobile CBR readers, this is the best I've used.

Hi all,

I have put a CE specific download link on the ZuluReader download page (www.zuluexpress.com). I am really keen to get some CE users to give ZR a try out as I have been asked by a taiwanese device design house to test and, if neccessary modify ZR on a new device they are developing. It is a CE 5 device with a 6 inch e-ink display (16 shades of gray). They are sending me a test unit in a few weeks but I'd love to get some feedback on ZR running on CE beforehand.

For those that don't know, ZuluReader is a reader app for DRM-free ePubs.

Cheers,

Steve.

No. Windows XP is an entirely different operating system from Windows CE. Also, your Palm PDA doesn't run Windows CE.

But if you're asking if you can read a particular ebook format on both your Palm PDA and Windows XP, then the answer is yes (probably).

I've written a program for reading eBooks on Windows Mobile devices. It can read txt, html and (DRM-free) ePub files. Screenshots attached.
[updated: version 1.0 released]

The program is called 'Freda' - short for 'free reader', since it is free software (both in the sense of 'free beer', as I am not charging for it, and in the sense of 'free speech', as I am licensing my code under the GPL).

It's in 'public beta' at the moment, so please download it and let me have any feeback.

The program uses two third-party libraries, SharpZipLib and the Majestic-12 HTMLParser library; both are licensed on terms permitting their redistribution for commercial and non-commercial purposes. More information is here

Happy reading!

I just bought an A81 MID with 7' screen and wince 6.0.

I tried the newest windows mobile version of mobipocket, un-cab it to exe, put it in and it works. I am not sure whether fake-dlls help here, for convenience I just put all window mobile exes in one directory with fake dlls. Now I can read .mobi files!

For the comic reader, I can't believe there is any other comic reader softwares better than Mangameeya, I even convert pdf to zipped images and read it with Mangameeya.
