Wow, the 1000MHz battery cheaper then Nokias 900MHz one? Very good news indeed!

Huge plus for the Pocket PRO

Robert, that's a huge plus for the Pocket Pro in my view.
Dear GA Russell:

Yes, I think that the user-replaceable rechargeable battery is a MAJOR reason to buy the Pocket PRO compared to a sealed-in device. The fact that the battery is easily available and so cheap adds to this major advantage!

I HOPE others will also THINK about this. It can run up to $100 to have the sealed-in battery changed by a factory... plus you will be out of luck on eading for a month or so! WHY do not more people catch onto the point that having a $100 charge tacked on to a $199 item is a major disadvantage?

Wow is right. That would be a very fast battery! You likely mean 1000mA.

Sweet. As long as it has an easy to replace battery, that makes it good in my book.

As far as I'm concerned, having a user replacable battery is high on the desirablilty scale, and is only one of the many reasons why I bought the EZ-Reader and pre-ordered the pocket pro!

It is still just one screw to get at the battery. The box comes with a screwdriver... but it takes a standard small Phillips Head screwdriver.

The Doors are pretty deep, man!! "Riders of the Storm" is still some dark listening... but excellent!!

The battery is a 1000mAh and not a 1000MHz. Posted just to avoid confusion.

Dear Musicman:

Note that Griffonwing did not say "listening to a device". I think he is listening to the "Arkansas Doors" in his garage... a group of five that forsakes musical instruments in favor of playing Post-Rap Punk Bluegrass on eBook Readers.

They are an obscure band that has managed to serve as Janitorial Services to Amazon.
