Dual firmware announcement

Well, they updated blog - small miracle. I think moaning around here helped
The key word is "soon"

I'm happy to read this announcement.

I'm impatient to test the new firmware for mobipocket.

Cheers.

We'll see how soon "soon" is...

Anyways, this is really good news!

BTW: Your title is a bit misleading - at first I thought this is about a dual-boot firmware tool to use ePub AND Mobi on one device.

That seems to confirm what we had previously speculated: that the 1.4/1.9 firmware versions were beta releases.

Yes. This had been said again and again.

Soon ? soon ? How soon anyway ?

At least my opus stopped crashing, don't know if it's the deactivating auto power off, or switching to sd, but that did it. I can without being interrupted.

I'm quite happy to concentrate on reading with mine rather than bothering about firmware. I suppose I'll upgrade it though after a few weeks when everybody is happy it works OK.

ps why do they need to make announcements in broken English? They must have some native speakers available to check their text before they post it. Or if they don't I'd gladly do it for them

Everybody with the possible exception of some native English speakers can read and write broken English fluently so it is not a problem. People should be encouraged to use broken English if the alternative is to say nothing at all.

Nope. I'll check it out, but i think it's ePub only.

Good to know. Then I will totally convert to the ePub version when it arrives.
