Soon to be owner of a Sony Reader!

Hello forum

I have ordered, and patiently await delivery of my Sony Reader!

I'll be using it on a trip to Europe, thus saving myself a few lbs in my luggage allowance...

eReader is the new name for Palm Reader. It is a viewer for electronic documents on PalmOS and other platforms and devices. If you were really looking for hardware Readers try E-book devices.

Would you like someone to fix the topic since the Sony Reader line cannot display eReader format eBooks?

Yes, please - I haven't got a handle on the terminology yet...

Pleasure - sister's wedding in the UK and then a week's holiday in Berlin. With a new PRS505S!

Welcome to MobileRead, Laird of Lard!

I've adjusted your title, so it's all good.

I'll be taking my own PRS500 to France with me next week, myself. (I'd probably pay a fortune in extra baggage without it!)

Hi Laird of Lard and welcome to the Forum. I got a 505 back in January and like it a lot.

It arrived!

And it's fabulous!

Having fun playing with Calibre, BookDesigner etc....

Sony's own software is a bit crap, though.
