Ereaders and Note Display (OneNote)


I recently purchased Microsoft OneNote to handle some of my
note-taking. It's quite powerful as I can import notes from a digital notepad
or my old convertible tablet PC. I'm looking for a solution to display these
notes on a "instant-on" mobile device. The newest tablet technology has
spawned a tablet app called MobileNoter. This app can sync OneNote notes
to either an iPad (software now available) or an Android device (in development).

At this point I have purchased neither a iPad-like device nor an ereader.
I wonder whether an ereader could be enhanced to provide a simple, cheaper
display (not necessarily editing) option for OneNote notes. I know OneNote
can export PDF files , so I can manually transfer them to an ereader. I'm
curious whether an ereader interface, i.e. an expanded and clear sync
function for this purpose, might be possible in future ereaders.

I'd invite comments from any note-takers that would consider this possible.
If anyone knows of a more obscure brand ereader that has such a capability,
please let me know.

Thanks, Bob
