Hey anybody knows if the PP can read non-DRM pdf and ePub? Also, what's the difference in reading pdf formatted ebooks on Adobe Reader and ADE? Thanks

Yes, it reads DRM-free PDF and ePub. On the EZ Reader's, mobile Adobe Digital Editions shows PDFs full page in portrait mode and full page across (margins trimmed?) in landscape mode. In addition is has 4 zoom levels, which are actually "reflow" rather than a conventional zoom. The text is extracted and shown in one of 4 font sizes. Images within the PDF are also still displayed, but images can prevent the reflow from working and if the PDF is entirely images (e.g. scans of a book) then reflow isn't possible. Usually, PDFs designed as ebooks will reflow but not all PDFs work well. They are old examples from a PRS-505, but see Full size .pdfs - screenshots and/or best option available now?. Reflow works the same way on the EZ Readers as on the PRS-505 (except with 5 zoom levels instead of 3).

On the Pocket Pro for DRM-free PDFs only, you can also use XPDF instread of ADE. This shows full page portait, full page margins trimmed, and landscape margins trimmed.

This should be stickied to the top of every page.

After reading this entire thread I'm still not sure whether the Pocket Pro supports non-DRM mobipocket...

So basicly it supports all mobipocket formated books, since you can deDRM those if you have the ability to do so.

It does not support those deDRM formats for any format but they will work. Support is a different thing.

One persons support is anothers open, or anothers read, or anothers use.

Since my EZ-Reader supports 14 or so formats, can I claim them as dependents?
