    I think most PDAs are able to read ebooks. I know JPaul has experience with them, maybe he'll see this topic.

    things are quiet until hitler decides he'd like to invade russia
    so, he does
    the russians are like "OMG WTF D00DZ, STOP TKING"
    and the germans are still like "omg ph34r n00bz"
    the russians fall back, all the way to moscow
    and then they all begin h4xing, which brings on the russian winter
    the germans are like "wtf, h4x"
    -- WW2 for the l33t

    I have an old Palm IIIxe which has 8Mb of memory and a black and white screen. It is perfect for ebooks.

    Please see this thread for the software I use to both read the books and do the conversion for use on the Palm.

    With the small file size I can store loads of books at the same time (I usually have about 10 at any one time), along with the other programs. This allows me to carry it about and chose what to read, depending what I feel like.

    I highly recommend the palm option for books, I think it is much easier than reading from a PC screen

    OK there has been a slight development on this front guys thanx for all the input but my friend just sold me his Nokia 7650 which has Symbian OS on it and although only 3.6MB of free memory im sure that that will be adequate for an ebook reader and a few books at a time

    Now i just gotta find an ebook reader that works well on the 7650

    Its really cool cos the Nokia 7650 has bluetooth link to my puter and i can move my ebooks from my main archive to my mobile with relative ease

    most all newer pda's have blutooth now or a card that can upgrade them
    the suprising thing here is u got blu tooth on ur comp

    u can also use ir to transfer ur files but u got to point the palm at the comp or printer to use it

    have u seen any of the blue tooth add going down the highway yet?

    ull be draiving along and the palm will beep and if u look at it i says theres a blue tooth connection and if u open it it telles u every thing thats at the next exit all catagorized for u like gas food and lodging

    had a pepsi mechien do it the other day to it even wanted me to buy a pop with my creditcard
