Are you sure. What can prevent them from porting FBReader and use that? Since they are not using any MobiPocket programs I do not get what hinders them.

that i do not know, you would have to ask bookeen directly. i am repeating what i read about the question over here :

To support ePub/PDF with Adept DRM, Bookeen need to use the Adobe SDK, and the Adobe contract does not allow them to use the SDK WITHOUT the DRM.

So if Bookeen want to support PRC withtout DRM, they will need to develop a new PRC reader, and that the same for ePub without DRM.


Until Mobipocket/Amazon forbid the use of multiple DRM on the same device, from a legal point of view Bookeen will never be able to release a firmware with both DRM, and I doubt they have time to develop something that will double their development time/debugging etc...

Yes, but that post says they cannot use the MobiPocket SDK at the same time as the Adobe SDK. But FBReader does not use the MobiPocket SDK. I suppose there might be other strange contractual reasons but there do not seem to be any obvious reasons.

The most obvious reason is that Bookeen has their own reader and software. They have a single look and feel. To use FBReader would not allow that as it is a separate program with its own look and feel so they would have to rewrite the manual and the ease of use would be less. Perhaps they could write their own mobi parser but that would be a large task.

Of course there are more or less possible obvious reasons why they do not want to do it. My statement was about reason why they cannot do it.

But I thought FBReader could just be plugged in and uses as an reader from the launcher. And most of the look and feel is in the launcher.

But FBreader doesnt support DRM Mobipocket right? So even if you put FBreader on there you could get support for MobiPocket but would need to jailbreak your DRM files to view them.

I would still rather they support Adobe DE over Mobipocket, I have devices that support Mobipocket but I need something for Adobe DE and this could make a good choice.

The Cybook Opus uses a new version of the Reader SDK: unlike the Sony Reader it can properly display justified text. Too bad that Sony isn't releasing a firmware update...

Aehm ...
Math was not you favourite subject, was it?

Sony (Kindle 1 and 2, cybook, ...) has 6 inch screen with 800x600 pixels
new Opus has 5 inch screen with 800x600 pixels resolution.

let's do a little bit of math here:
5 inch diagonal 800x600 screen makes classical pythagorian triangle 3,4,5
let's check it:
3^2 + 4^2 = 5^2
9 + 16 = 25

OK. we have established that 5 inch screen has dimensions exactly 3 x 4 inches.

Now, bear with me
800 pixels / 4 inches is ...
TADAAAAAA
200 pixels per inch. *Exactly* 200 pixels per inch.

i believe godzil was referring to the 6" screen. the 5" screen does indeed have 200ppi.
