Question Jetbook mini file formats?

Hi!
I was just looking over the specs of the jetbook mini, and was wondering if it read all the file formats it specified on the web (or if you have to convert all those and read only TXT and FB2)?

What is FB2?

And does the mini have audio/mp3 playback ability?

What about SD cards, SDHC 16GB capable?

Thanks!

Has an sd regular size slot - read somewhere 2 gig limit but don't know if that is true or no. Txt and fb2 only but Calibre can convert to them. Just got one, not overly impressed, but a good knock around reader.

It seems to support upto 16GB with firmware update...
Too bad the file formats are so limited!
They get such long battery life, by not equipping the device with anything, but text reading capabilities and an SD card reader!

As one that has computed for years and fought obsolete formats, conversions etc. I appreciate .txt files. I save everything that way. Books get saved as is but I keep an eye on conversion possibilites going away :-)

I find Epub is the best format!
Easily convertible to any other format, and it includes covers and illustrations (which TXT does not).

TXT is not bad though, it would have been better if all txt files could be compressed. That way it's possible to put 10 books in one book space!

FB2 is fiction book 2 format. Read about it in our wiki.
