nifty!

That is great that it is going to support epub and fictionwise's format. I wish more ereaders were more flexible on what formats they support.

BooksonBoard has DRM ePub and some public libraries are beginning to convert to ePub.

Is the "Fictionwise eReader" actually the eReader format or is it eReader DRM around an ePub format? I know they were supposed to be working on the latter.

Totally agree...Ok, gonna be limited on DRM'ed titles, but hey, I hardly use em and DRM for personal use ca be stripped, so no real issue there.

Nice size, but I would prefer White, it'd match the rest of my 'tech these days, and I don't even by Mac or apple Stuff!

I like the price, but after watching the recent video I'm afraid it might be too small.

Dear Brecklundin:

FRY's would have to mark it up in price. We are going to sell the Pocket PRO only from our website so there is no markup.
