Questions for new Iliad owners!

This thread is for posting questions about the Iliad. New Iliad owners can come here when they have received their devices to answer some of the questions the poor Iliad-less people posted...

This is to prevent those question form cluttering up lots of other threads and getting lost or staying unnoticed.

Another good starting place is the Wiki. --Alex

First one, and a main one: Is GPL acknowledged for in the small print of the printed documentation, and if so for which software (Linux, xpdf, netpbm...)?

Even Sony acks it in the Librie docs.

What other software, non GPL, is acknowledged, and which versions (this is important for pdf)?

How is the screen protected? None of the pictures I have seen show any kind of a cover. The inside of my bookbag is a tumultuous, chaotic, environment. I wouldn't want to put an unprotected iLiad screen in there. Does it come with anything to cover the screen?

LauretteBradley: It isn't, and no.

But they will be selling a case soonish apparently (this really bugs me, I spent all this money and they don't even give me a case).

I also want to get a screen protector, just like we use for PDAs or smartphones, wonder whether iliad has this kind of accessories.

About the GPL and other Software related questions..maybe the answer is here?

https://www.irexshop.com/conditions....cac076875e52e1

I'm too jittery to read it now, but maybe somebody wants to take a look...lots of legal stuff in there...

Hmm... I am no Lawyer and english is not my native tongue, but this does not look GPLish, or am I wrong?:

I have no idea...there woas something aobut software rights and public availability and stuff so I thought it might be something like that...but I'm no lawyer either and english isn't my main language either so I thought that's for somebody else to plow through...^^

I'd be curious to know what books - if any - are on the Iliad already.
Wasn't there talk at some point of at least a dictionary?

i think i have enough books for a few pleasant reading years And then there is always some recent novel, that you can get for your new toy. But mostly i will use it for manuals and references.

The weak point of previous e-ink displays (ie librie) was not the front but the backplane. It is a rigid display, and excesive torsion can break it. Perhaps the wacom tablet here gives additional rigidity.

Here's one for tomorrow:

The charger it comes with is it the travel charger that is shown on their accessories list?

And does that have a UK style plug as well as the US/european types shown.

Otherwise I will have to go out and buy an adapter, and this scares me.
