The main thing the reader is for is fiction, with PDF being a second (although a close second). And with being a second, the price difference between the iLiad and the others becomes larger. Does anybody know how well the Cybook or the Sony reader go in viewing PDFs, are they good, passable or not good?

Also the other readers of the CyBook and the Sony reader, they say they take mobipocket format ebooks. Does this mean that any ebook store online that says a book is in mobipocket format can be used and read on these devices. When i was looking up the Sony reader i thought it said that the only books that could be read on it were from the sony online bookshop and then the bookshop said was only downloadable in the US. though i may be wrong

Thanks for all the help
