Dell Axim x5 as a E-Book Reader

  I have recently purchased a Dell Axim x5 Pocket PC to use as a E-Book Reader, And I will tell you it was a pretty good choice. I can read e-books of all formats except for Amazon’s Kindle Version. But MobiPocket.com Amazon’s Sister company I can, So I can pretty much read any type of E-Books out there. The Pocket PC also can surf the web and play both mp3s and Videos (Not on the web due to lack of flash and will update if I fix this issue) which most E-Book Reader Devices can not do. Size is also a plus for me, It fits in your hand and still has a large enough screen to make reading enjoyable. Though I think the Kindle and Sony‘s E-book readers may give you a better experience in the amount of text you can read per page. Price is what sold me, now days you can get pocket pcs used for around $40 – $70 on both amazon.com and eBay.com .

Well enough about that..

Peace to all

E-Books The Future of Written Word

With the new trend in E-Books and readers there is many sites out there offering both free and purchasable EBooks. From amazon to MobiPocket and software from both of them to enable both your pc and your mobile devices to read e-books it seems the way of paper and ink are becoming like the way of cds and dvds. The possibilities are grand for the new digital trend especially in the education sector. Just imagine the collage student can carry all of his or her books in one SD card or on her laptop. This could also lower the cost of books for both the university/collage and the k-12 schools.

  Though I have a feeling the publishing companies will either try and squash the possibilities of E-books for schools or make the cost of them the same to make it  less advantageous to go digital. Either way I believe E-books will eventually be the norm both in ones house and in the schools across America.

Below are a few links that might be helpful to those interested in E-books.

I wrote earlier about a E-Book found on Archive.org and the various file formats that are supported. Besides Acrobat Reader that reads the PDF files there are several other Free E-Book Reader Programs Available for PC and Mac Below is a list for those who (Like me) either can not afford a Kindle or another E-Book Reader Device and want to read The Books on My Pc/Laptop/Netbook or Mac etc..

Kindle Reader Available for Mac, pc, I phone, Android, Blackberry and even I pad.
To Get The Kindle Reader Software Go To Amazon Free Kindle Software

There is also FBReader which is available for Windows and Linux based systems. Fbreader supports several E-book formats but the main one is Epub which is used at many libraries across the U.S. To Get FBReader go to FBReader’s Homepage

There is the standby of Acrobat Reader that supports the PDF file format. and can be downloaded at http://get.adobe.com/reader/

Well Hope this is helpful for those of us out there that may want to skip paying 99 dollars or better for a Electronic Book Reader Device and don’t mind using what we have to get the many free and paid for books out there.

Well peace for now
