I agree that it should be changed from looking like a cell phone to looking like something having to do with ebooks. I don't know how to make logos though.

I agree, a new logo is in order, but it doesn't have to look just like a dedicated reader. Keep in mind, people read on different devices... the key is "mobile," not dedicated.

I'll give a new logo a shot... I've already got an idea or two. Give me a week or two, and I'll send what I come up with!

The new logo doesn't have to be designed right now. Take some time to have a think. Even if you may not be good at actually making the logo, an idea of what it might be might give someone else the help needed to do a nice logo.

I'd like to see something else too. I mean, the mobile phone even has an antenna! How...5 minutes ago

Seriously though, I'd love to see something else too and I'll see if I have any inspiration this weekend. Kinda busy with work that pays the bills right now

I don't think I would focus on reader hardware as much as the e-book concept, but that's just me. I'm a newcomer here, so my vote isn't worth a whole lot.

Something like an open book with a magnified spot on one page revealing 1's and 0's might be cool.

That is a positively good idea!

This is the kind of input needed for those who'll do the drawings. We need direction and criticism but mostly positive imaging... More!

When I do design for others, I always bang my nose against the same wall. People have more knowlege of what they don't like than what they do like. So you draw with suggestions of what you think the person wants, only to hear "Idon't like it" Then you go back to modify or do something totally different. Arrrgh!

Although I've joked around, the MR logo has become a symbol in my dayly routines, that represents anticipation towards "a good feeling is about to happen". Fits well with the expression "It grows on you".

Probably best not to show recognisably-specific devices. That way you don't need to change the logo when new things appear.

It's definitely looking a bit dated...

Maybe something based on an icon for a turnable page (one or two partly-turned corners) but in a sleek package. View partly from side/above to show it's sleek and slim...

It was fine with me, but if you want to change it, maybe a book on legs. Many legs. like The Luggage.

Your vote is worth as much as everyone else's.

And actually, your idea for the logo is an interesting one. I'd like to see what someone could do with it.

I've pictured the luggage a bit different. More like a suitcase made of sapient wood with legs.

Since we're on the web, an animated logo would be Tops! How about something like diabloNL's avatar as an idea? Without the PRS of course.
