Send to ereader

Is there is an option / possibility with a cybook odissey front light to do a "Send to " Device just like on kindle ?

I'm using more and more Instapaper / pocket, and I would love to do this kind of setup

With Calibre you can do that, with USB cable or over WIFI with your computer as a server.

It's not exactly the same thing (for example, there are services, like longform.org which is using the kindle emaill address)
I just got a kindle paperwhite, i think i'm in love, and i'm going to send back the odissey : i don't need the physical buttons as much as i though, the display is better, the light can be set to a lower intensity (very important for my wife..).
I'll test both a few days more.

I see, I am quite new to this. Still trying to get a grip.

I would really fancy a smooth way to get web articles straight to the Odyssey.

The Odyssey Frontlight leaves much to which for, but as this is my first e-reader I do not have hands on experience of other e-readers. But Odyssey is not locked to a format, wich for me is a reason better than any to choose it.

Yes, the light should be possible to set to a lower level. There are a lot of weird things. No search, few dictionaries, zooming is not that great, annotations works bad, bookmarking is awkward,to get to table of content you need to flip through several menues, and so on.

If you come up with a good solution for sending articles to the Odyssey please let me know.

Just use Calibre, and you can ignore Format Locking.

I returned the Odissey. The Paperwhite is just better : faster, better light control, and a better display, dictionary is well integrated (and handle several languages), better built (I tend to read on the side, with my hand weighing on the e-reader 's side : the cybook is painfully edgy). It just does not have any physical buttons, but that's not as much a problem than I thought.
