Hello Readius?!!

Hi all,
I've been waiting and waiting for THE E-Book for my needs, frivilous though they are. Up till now while the iliad was closest in ability, it was farthest in price.
Suddenly the clouds part, the sun beams blind me, and a voice booms, "READIUS"

I wait, I wait.

Still waiting.

Any word big booming voice?

One significant issue with using the Readius as an eBook reader is that it has a very low resolution screen - only quarter VGA (320x240). Most devices with 5" screens have at least full VGA resolution (640x480). As a result, fonts on the Readius won't be very well-formed, and the display will be rather "pixilated".

There hasn't been any Readius news since July. You could try writing to Polymer Vision people, but don't hold your breath.

A good point. Whats your opinion on it overall?

Yeah I tried that and it was the usual, no news at this time.

Not really intended as a dedicated eBook reader. Doesn't support any "genuine" eBook formats.
