Ok, I have read all the reviews etc. my onyx boox is dying and is very bulky, so I’m going to splash out and get a new ebook reader. I use the kobo and the kindle apps on my android samsung galaxy phone, and I use the kindle app. I buy books from amazon and it’s fantastic the way they synch and download etc. however, i don’t wish to be tied to a proprietary format. I have a lot of ebooks, and I don’t want the hassle of converting them. Anyway, there is a hack to convert kindles books to epubs.
So I checked out Engadget’s review of the sony wifi, and I’m in love!!! the main selling point is:”built-in access to public library and Google Books content” I wanna be able to download free ebooks from the internet. I hate the current sony reader software, but calibre works with it, and is brilliant software. everyone who uses it should donate a buck or two. I’m going into town now in 5 minutes in the rain to see if the local sony store has one for sale.
