With the recent release of the Amazon Kindle ebook reader the Sony ebook reader range face some competition in this new and getting hotter market. Clicking rent kindle children books. It doesn't incorporate a backlit screen though so, if like me, you like reading in bed you'll still be juggling about with the torch! If you're expecting an all singin' dancin' piece of technology in this ebook reader you'll probably be disappointed since it doesn't fully support PDF The Kindle can read unsecured Mobipocket books, and Amazon has provided a still experimental converter for unsecured PDFs. There is, however, no way to read encrypted versions of either format- annotating articles isn't possible - you're limited to the Kindle ebooks available and their pricing structure, also remember that the screen is black and white so magazine articles and pics will take some adjusting to. The MP3 player seems to be causing some problems as it will only random play and the user has little control over this aspect and users think that Amazon, with its own encrypted books, are trying to ensure that all content comes from them and are just trying to exercise too much control. You can transfer over unencrypted ebooks via SD card or even email them to yourself but the latter choice incurs a 10c fee. There are a few options for storage if you exceed the Kindles memory - you can store them onto a SD card and then transfer them to your PC via USB or Amazon can store them online for you and it does seem possible that you can access Streamload's site via the Whispernet facility to up and download as you wish. The main controversy that the Kindle reader opens up is that of pricing, not only of the reader itself but of ebooks in general. Many users of the reader are complaining about the price of some of the ebooks where there is only a small reduction in price compared to the hard back copy. Ebooks are growing in popularity all the time and it is going to be a while though before all publishers and retailers will get their heads together and sort out some commonalities. In comparison the Sony ebook readers don't have the advantage of the e-ink screen and may be more difficult to read in certain lighting conditions but it does give you easier access to a wider and cheaper range of ebooks. So should you buy one? - if the higher price tag doesn't concern you and you're one of the "gotta have's" then you've probably already decided it should be on your list - personally I'd look at some of the alternatives and wait for not only a later version, which will probably be significantly cheaper anyway, but some of the niggling problem areas may well have been sorted. For those of you that want more info go to.
