Talking Hi from Australia :)

I joined the MobileRead forum some time ago, but work and other distractions prevented my return...

I've come seeking advice on an e-ink reader... one which will allow me to load books I have acquired from elsewhere... ie, not stuck with a proprietary format or DRM'd.

I'll pose my questions in the appropriate forum, once I've actually composed them in my head. Seems like there could be some brand evangelists in here (been reading in the which one you should buy thread).

As an FYI, I have a Mac, iphone (3GS not 4) and iPad. I used to read on the computer but not since I discovered more portable methods. I like reading on both iPhone and iPad, but not when I am outside, hence the search for the perfect e-ink reader.

Looking forward to participating (finally!)

Welcome to MobileRead, kyteflyer

As for "brand evangelists".......yes we have them. Heres the thing........

Whichever brand we have is perfect for us, therefore we feel it should be perfect for you!

But in all seriousness.......we'll try to give unbiased help.

Enjoy.

Thanks so much, all of you... and I even got an *official* welcome

After having posed a question here and there, it seems I am going to be getting a Kindle and doing conversions... the general consensus seems to be that Kindle has the best screen at the moment, and its price is PDG as well

Thanks again for your welcomes!

Hi guys, and thanks again... changed my mind about the Kindle, ended up with Sony PRS650. But it seems like people usually end up having more than one device. Bring it on, I say
