Clipping and copying notes

Other than the Kindle, is there an ebook reader where you can select sentances or paragraphs from a book or document that you are reading, and save it in a file that you can then copy over to a desktop ?

Many thanks for any help that you can give.

Hal.

No replies.

It is just the hugely expensive Kindle 2, isn't it ?

If you look at the E-book Reader Matrix, there is an entry for Note taking / highlighting / underlining. Most devices don't include any such capability. The Sony PRS-700 has highlighting, but I don't know how (or if) it is exportable to a PC. The PRS-700 is also expensive, and your cheapest option is therefore probably a used Kindle 1.

This would be a natural capability to include in devices with a touch screen, and there will likely be a few more of these soon (Astak first prototype of Mentor Intrique TOUCH).
