After reading your question, I went to the Shucang site and downloaded several Chinese ebooks in ePub format. I loaded them on the Sony reader and I am sorry to say that though they appear in the library page, they do not display the text at all except as little squares.
I am very satisfied with the way my Cybook displays Chinese texts in the MobiPocket format but it is getting a bit old now. I am looking to getting a BeBook Neo since it will also reads MobiPocket files and seems to handle pdf files better than other readers.
Maybe if you bought a Sony PRS-650 in China or Hong Kong, it might display Chinese. By the way, does you wife read Chinese in the simplified script or the classical script?
hi,I'm also interested in these products(prs650 prs950),I come from Shanghai,China.I ofen read in simplified Chinese.I want to know if they support simplified Chinese originally???
