The best e-book reader in 2009, according to the-ebook.org

The winners are:

1. Sony PRS-505
The "Classic" and the absolute winner among all the readers since sales began. But it is no longer manufactured since 2009.

2. Pocketbook 301+
The company pocketbook began its triumphant climb with this model, and so they captured 2nd Place in the rankings.

3. Pocketbook 360 °
The novelty of the year 2009! Pocketbook 360 ° could prove a better place if the price is not with the "classical" 6" models would have been comparable.

Seems like a slightly curious selection - eg no mention at all of the CyBook Opus, which is (IMHO) the best ePub device on the market. Perhaps it's influenced by its primarily Russian readership?

Of course, in the Russian market ePub is not valid. As for the best best ePub device on the market. can wash a lot of opinions. When reading books without DRM Pocketbook has the same format ePub many advantages. In the near future will be improved and the reading of ePub with DRM.

Sorry, I don't understand that. Is there some reason that ePub doesn't work with Cyrillic fonts, or is it simply that no Russian eBooks are currently being published in the ePub format?

Books in EPUB format is almost no in Russian, in countries where read in Russian in the mostly used format fb2.

I see - thanks . The new Bookeen firmware adds support for the FB2 format, so perhaps that will make their machines more popular in Eastern Europe.

True, the only question is how well supported, I have yet to test himself could not. For example JetBook also supports the format fb2, so bad (with the firmware with the bark I tested), that would be better if he does not support it.

jetBook and jetBook-Lite have FB2 support with pictures and I never had problems with it.

And the Nook has been out for a short time, with B&N not making promised delivery dates, and it is above the Kindle lol.
Seems to be something wrong with the ranking....

Though I will admit that the 505 is my choice for the top

As I already wrote, I can only speak about the buyout Firmware version I tested (and I specifically emphasized. That it was only about a tested version of me), then in FB2 no pictures, as well as more than 30% do not read books, so as not supported by their coding.
Perhaps in the latest version of Firmware, these problems have been corrected.

With all ranked in the order, simply participating could vote for the same device, the buyout, they only heard from reviews and surveys, and not talk for the buyout themselves enjoyed.

This is mainly referred to the new Medel such as Nook or PRS-900.
