... which is a really strange decision. eReader doesn't even support VGA-enabled Pocket PCs.

I've never used eReader or iSilo for PocketPC, but I use them both on Palm OS and there's no competition - iSilo is far and away the better reader. So much more configurable, can be operated entirely using the buttons etc etc. I just don't understand why people rate eReader and Mobipocket so highly - I only use them when I have to, for DRM-protected books. For the same reason, I also have to use Adobe Reader for Palm, unfortunately.
