Good find!

it's about 70 quid under RRP but i have never seen the green one before, it looks horrible! Can you get a cheap skin/cover for it that completely hides the green?

Good price against RRP (which is too high anyway IMO) - *however* be aware that although this supports EPUB files (which most manufacturers are moving towards), it doesn't support the other main open standard MOBI files. If your local library service lends ebooks, they're likely to be a combination of EPUB and MOBI, so some won't work with this reader - same goes for retail sites too.

Calibre can convert most formats though. :thumbsup:

I've heard the name but not really heard much more. Can it convert DRM protected files, particularly with expiration dates, where the PID is attached to the file?

u know the ipad is going to make this obsolete pretty darn quick right! except for viewing in direct sunlight

i'm no mac fanboy either!

The whole point about these devices is that with the e-ink technology you don't experience eye-strain over prolonged periods. The ipad may be a nice piece of kit but ebook readers will beat it hands down if you're planning to use it to read ebooks.

iPad is running constantly so that means a battery life of 4 odd hours.

This can last for days.

Super find, I've been looking for an Ereader for a week or two now and have ordered one of these!!

Thanks

ipad=10 hour battery life on lowest settings

reader=4days with maximum usage (usually lasts for more like 2-3weeks)

plus ipad doesn't have e-ink, though the screen isn't as bad to read from as a regular netbook

I'd definitely buy this if they had a more bearable colour =[ voted hot anyway!

Just taken a call from tesco direct, seems the webprice listed is an error, my order is cancelled and a refund will be given. he also added not to bother ordering another as the website hasn't been corrected yet

I was slightly suspicious with it being listed in the data storage section, apologies if anyone's been inconvenienced.

Not your fault, and I guess shows what a good deal it would have been given that Tesco won't honour it. :thumbsup:

Having said that it's dissapointing Tesco won't honour as I'm sure they would still be making a profit on it.:x

actually you know apple are just good at selling you stuff u don't really need. I hadn't realised how much of a lock-in buying an apple product was.

I hope cheaper but more future-proofed Ebook readers hit the market, also addressing environmental concerns so they can be recycled properly when purpose served.

thanks for reading
