Newbies First Day on website

Hello all. I am interested in updates on ebook readers, especially Astak readers. Are they coming out with improved readers: color capable and better sorting. I have the 5" pocket pro and love it. Do color capable models use more power? Thanks.

Hi Mary and welcome to MobileRead, Color capable readers are, apparently, not to far in the distant future. Hang out here and you'll be one of the first to know.

Hi Mary, welcome to MR. Color e-ink readers are still a little ways off, I think, though we've heard a lot of rumblings about color, nothing has shown up in the market place yet.

Someone familiar with Astak readers will be able help you out with reports on upcoming models.

I actually join this forum a week or so ago. Since then there are any number of times I’ve been reminded that I have not yet introduced myself. This should remedy that oversight.

I am a retired senior citizen who has been recently discovered e-books. I have a Sony PRS 600 reader, and a second Sony PRS 600 reader, which I bought as a backup, but has now been usurped by my wife.

I discovered Calibre very early on, and was immediately impressed. I quickly forwarded a small token of my appreciation to the author via PayPal. For any of you who haven't done that, and use the product (and have the wherewithal) I suggest that it would be a wise idea.

As a newbie in this forum I have several questions. Some are relative to Calibre, and others are relative to the Sony device I own and/or the next Sony device that I will own.

As time goes on I hope I will be able to be of help to others as I'm certain you people are going to be to me.

Thanks for the use of the soap box!

J.
