IVIEW 7" colour ebook reader - 700EB
I've been lurking here for a month or so, and while I've read a number of books of my laptop, the only mobile device I've read from was my old palm pilot. I'm in Canada, so I don't want to but the Kindle with the whole shipping from the States thing. I've found a ebook reader that looks like it could be good, but I'm not sure. I haven't found any reviews for it, just the specs, so I was wondering if other people have used IView products. I can get it for $135 plus taxes.

I got the iView ereader. Here are my observations on it:
Excellent backup eReader. Good to learn.
1. Very bad for PDF
2. Not sure about how long battey will last and durability
3. Make own folder for different kinds of media. It can't recognize the differnt once like music etc., and just gives a long list.
4. CAN be used while charging
5. Video seems to drain battery faster.
6. Micro SD card is a pain, wish it took regular Memory cards.
7. Headphones that come in the package are poor quality.
1. mp4 and all other formats supported by Skytex
2. Colors for text
3. Change background to black and text to different colors
4. Where is reset button ?
5. Alarm feature
6. Synthetic Case instead of Leather
7. Can't delete files from the device directly.
8. Doesnt say when charging is complete. Would be nice if there was an indicator for this.
9 Sort of hard on eyes, so needs a protective screen

The biggest drawback so far, is that this eReader battery lasts only for reading 28 pages or so, then it shuts down saying low power. Some folks have said that the skytex worked ok after two charges. This is the third time I am charging my device. Will try it some more and see. Meanwhile, here is their site:
Manual for this eReader can also be downloaded from there.
