ebooks on Symbian
I recently got a new phone - a Nokia e62. This is the first time I've been exposed to the Symbian operating system.
The first thing I did was look for an ebook reader. Lo and behold, Mobipocket has a version out for the Symbian platform. It works just fine and I've migrated all my reading over to the Nokia. The wide screen does a pretty good job, the display is extremely sharp and crystal clear, and its really nice to carry just one "thing" around with me.
So far, Mobipocket is the only reader I can find for the phone. eReader has a Symbian version, but it's fairly out of date and doesn't work on the newer versions of the Symbian OS.
Anyone else have any experience with ebooks on Symbian?

I use Handy Book on my Sony Ericsson P900 and I love it. The software is flawless and the phone is ideal for reading. The entire face of the phone is a screen, but unlike a PDA, it's the size of a regular candy bar style phone. IMHO the only way this could be better is if it had an e ink screen.
