Would love to find some reviews on this...

no Epub or PDF?? bit lame, i'll reserve judgement until some reviews found
it does say PDF in the original protection up top, just not Rights Protected ones
I don't get it - why's this so cold?

It's the cheapest e-Reader by far.

Just wish there were more reviews for it! I need something for scientific documents.
This supports openinkpot so will support many many formats,a long with Calibre for loading them on.

The problem is that it only supports the DRM files via an upgrade which atm has vanished from the internet!
I dont get why these readers have so little memory on them, there is plenty of space to include normal amounts for 2010, not 64mb
-Extremely large capacity with 2G SD card (up to 8G) for thousands of books with support for most ?!
the Elonex 511 that is being sold by Waterstones is a newer version of this device, includes a keyboard and is only a few pounds more.
I bought one a couple of weeks ago.
The software isn't quite there yet - the note taking function isn't complete, but it's by far the best value out there at the moment at £130 - it comes with a 4GB SD card and can take up to 32
The software fix is due in a couple of weeks, and they are already enhancing it.
Whats it like for displaying pdfs? Ive got loads of pdfs of novels and was gonna buy a sony pocket reader till I noticed theres no sd card slot...Dont want to buy one, stick some pdfs on and wait for ages while it loads the next page!
