Karim Zaouai has created an eBook reader concept that has dual screens that use eInk technology. The video doesn’t show a real product and instead, looks to superimpose images of an eBook reader on the device to give you an idea of what the concept is about.
If the product ever makes it to production, it is expected that it will have wireless capabilities to download books to the internal storage.
That’s quite the screen refresh rate if they plan to implement a transition from one side of the screen to the other for pages. Content ratings help you understand the type of content you might find in an app or game, so you can decide if they are suitable for you and your family. If an app or game does not have a rating, it means that it has not yet been rated, or it’s been rated and we’re working to update the page.
Adobe Acrobat eBook Reader has been tested by Softonic, but it still doesn't have a review in English.
A security update has been released by Adobe for Adobe Reader and Acrobat for Windows and Mac. One of the recurring themes that will undoubtedly come out of CES2010 is eBook Readers, or maybe we should start calling them eContent readers. Make no mistake about it, this is a play by Hearst Publishing to try and move their newsprint business to digital and that touchscreen?
The Skiff (and other eReaders for that matter) beg the big question that we may or may not see answered this year.
At some point, maybe we’ll have screens on general-purpose computers that provide the maximum reading comfort that technology allows, but the lack of motion video on the better reading screen technologies seems to be holding that up into the indefinite future.
The eBook Reader Blog keeps you updated on the latest ereader and tablet news, reviews, and tutorials. Sony may have given up on ebooks, but they are still holding onto PDFs—on how to best display them in digital form, that is.
In typical Sony fashion they’ve finally come out with a PDF reader that lots of people want, but they make it pretty much impossible to get unless you are loaded with money. According to Worldox, they are only authorized by Sony to sell the DPT-S1 PDF Reader to business professionals in the legal and banking industries.
Too bad Sony is stifling the DPT-S1 so much by only focusing on the business market and disregarding the consumer market entirely. I have been trying to come up with a logical explanation for Sony’s behavior, but failed. If they made this available to the mass public, I would buy it as a secondary reading device. For example, I bought a really good (on paper) Sony camera a couple of years ago but when I got it I realized that the image compression was set on high and unchangeable despite many, many people asking for a compression free option, making a great camera just so so. I will continue to push the Kindle DX (which Amazon re-introduced to the market around the time the Sony was being released in Japan) BUT am personally very very close to paying the full Japan import price.
After using Kindle DX, Icarus eXcel and Pocketbook Pro 912 for some years, I can tell you DPT-S1 is *the* best PDF reader I have ever seen. On the first days, I had to use my smartphone and Google Translator to take shots of the screen, in order to get the meaning of all menu options. It is obvious this is a careful marketing strategy in a market monopolised by Amazon on ereaders for novels and the ipad for pdf’s. At first I was having some issues with it getting slow and not responding too, and that’s actually why I had to look up how to restart because I forgot.
I am wondering if there is any way to mark the book READ so I can tell that I already read it…sometime I forget what I have read.
I have created the collections but how do I move a book from my reading collection to my read collection?
I read where if your not in the US and have a US version with Special Offers if you call Amazon Support in your country and ask real nice they will turn it off for you.
When I turn pages, sometimes,it skips many pages and I have to go searching for the page I want.Why does this happen?Is there something wrong with the Paperwhite? I’ve heard of that sometimes happening with ereaders that use infrared touchscreens but the Kindle Paperwhite has a capacitive screen.
Hi, Just bought kindle paperwhite and the top menu bar where the time and battery life should be is black and blank no information at all is showing.
Unlike Kobo ereaders, the time to read function does work on sideloaded books with the Kindle Paperwhite. The Apple iPad is much more than an ebook reader, it's a full-fledged multimedia device that is more of a competitor to laptops and netbooks than it is to traditional E Ink ereaders. Comparing it to traditional epaper ereaders, the iPad doesn't have the super defined text, nor does it have anywhere near the battery life.
One of the biggest benefits of the iPad is that you can install different ereader apps and download ebooks on the fly from a number of different sources, including Amazon, Kobo, B&N, and others. Getting unencrypted EPUBs onto the device takes a few steps; you cannot drag and drop files directly to the iPad.
Update: Make sure to check this recent blog post about the new iBooks firmware update for the latest list of features. The bookshelf view shown in the image at the very top of this page is the default layout for iBooks, and there's also a few different options for displaying ebooks in a list format.
The bookshelf view is automatically sorted by most recent, or you can manually edit it by dragging books around the shelf. The iBooks app connects directly to the iBookstore for purchasing ebooks, downloading samples, and for getting free ebooks. Other sections include the NY Times Bestsellers list, $9.99 or less, books on movie, pre-orders, etc. Yesterday when my Kobo Aura HD showed up at my door, I opened it up and just like the Kobo Glo and Kobo Mini I started the ridiculously long process of setting it up. Once I got past all the annoying setup, none of my Kobo ebooks would show up anywhere on the Kobo Aura HD. It was very frustrating and I was about ready to throw my Kobo Aura HD out the window, but then I decided to go through everything in the settings menu to see if I could figure out how to get the device to properly recognize the purchased ebooks associated with my Kobo account. So the first thing you are going to want to do if your Kobo ereader ever starts acting buggy and is doing strange things is to check the date and time and make sure it is correct. Really the review is going to be 95 percent the same as the Kobo Glo from a functionality and software standpoint.
Given that both Readers need WLAN and the Internet to function properly I am surprised that they do not set at least the date from a server (timezone I can understand, but date???). Aura is definitely not a good PDF reader, I tried seven different fiction PDF files on mine, was able to read none. I wonder if it has to do with the version of Acrobat (or embedded Acrobat engine – such as used natively by Apple or various software like MSWord.) that originally rendered the PDF or any conversions the document has gone through? Emily I love you, you just solved my problem with my light, which seemed to stop working, but was turned down to zilch. Well, anyway, time and date are very important components in SYNC even to any other devices. Definitely had some books before 2012 because it still annoyingly insists on downloading some old newspaper subscriptions from 2010 during the initial setup.
I’ve really enjoyed reading on my Aura HD, but there is one slight imperfection I have noticed so far.
I really recommend the Aura HD over all other readers at this point when it comes to hardware quality, but the software just isn’t up to Kindle par. I loaded one of my home crafted epubs that did have an endnote link, it worked perfectly fine on the Kobo Aura. I noticed a pin hole of light on mine too when the keyboard is open because it’s dark and makes it more noticeable. I have no idea why you book worms still mess around with ancient tech like eReaders… typing this on my Lenovo ThinkPad tablet 2 with Windows 8 Pro.
We persist with ereaders, because we dont want a clunking big tablet that hurts your eyes if you look at it for hours.

For your Kobo Aura review, it would be so great if you could show us the benefit of the extra inch of screen real estate by putting the Aura beside the Kobo Glo, and have both devices in the same book, at the beginning of the same chapter, with the same font, same font size, same line spacing, same everything.
Kobo customer service couldn’t help me unfreeze my screen after all kinds of resets and charging. Today Kobo officially announced the upcoming release of the new Kobo Glo HD ebook reader that turned up online a couple days ago.
What makes the Kobo Glo HD unique from other Kobo devices is the super high 300 ppi resolution screen. The Kobo Glo HD is set to be released on May 1st in Canada, the United States, Australia, and New Zealand. Granted the Glo HD doesn’t have the fancy page turn sensors and flush screen like the Voyage, but it has a lot more font choice options and support for ePub going for it. Supported formats: EPUB, EPUB3, PDF, and MOBI (barely), TXT, HTML, XHTML, and RTF, CBZ and CBR, Adobe DRM.
Lots of apps and programs support ePub 3 to some degree, not many E Ink devices other than Kobo but then again there aren’t many ereader brands left.
The video below shows the device being used with the content of the pages being manipulated by controls on the device. It does not indicate that the app was specifically designed for that particular age, or if a certain level of skill is required to play the game or use the app. We do not encourage or condone the use of this program if it is in violation of these laws.
This includes to personalise ads, to provide social media features and to analyse our traffic. The difference is that at home I want to read newspaper & mags and the large format is perfect. This is critical for me as I also use it to read long work related documents when out of the office. This size will fit in carriers I’d usually haul magazines around in, props better, and is more functional for reading than anything smaller. Not sure I really want a standalone device…really, I just want something that will talk to my main computer seamlessly, have a more comfortable screen than the usual computers for extended reading, and have anonymous access to whatever booksellers might want to purvey appropriate books and magazines my way, hopefully to include the whole known universe of published works. There are retailers on Amazon and eBay that are selling the imported Japanese version for $1350 to $1500, and several listings on eBay have sold at those prices.
So I am looking at the bright side: high prices and unmet demand breed competition and choice. I’ve been waiting for a device like this for years as I have piles of printed A4 academic papers that I dont want to read on my PC or an IPAD. DPT-S1 uses only webdav protocol and I didn’t know it at that time (manual in japanese). The thing is probably subsidized anyway considering the amount of money they must have spent on R+D. In order to post comments, please make sure JavaScript and Cookies are enabled, and reload the page. Please add any other tips that you know or come across in the comments section at the bottom of the page. The ebook is designed specifically for Kindles and contains many of the tips listed below, along with dozens of additional tricks and resources to help get the most out of your Kindle.
Unsubscribe from Special Offers (Advertisements) – You can remove the ads on your Kindle Paperwhite by visiting the Manage Your Devices page at Amazon and editing the Special Offers field.
Restart Kindle – Press and hold the power button for approximately 20 seconds then release. Kindle Daily Deal – Every day Amazon offers an ebook deal on their Kindle Daily Deals page. Games and Active Content – Aside from books, there are games and active content available for Kindle ereaders. Parental Controls – From the settings menu under device options you can enable parental controls to restrict access to the web browser, Kindle Store, and archived items. Password Protection – From the device options section of the settings menu you can choose to protect the Kindle with a password that is required whenever the device is turned on. Airplane mode – Wireless, and thus airplane mode, can only be turned on and off from the setting menu accessible from the homescreen.
Remove Recommended Titles – When using cover view on the homescreen, Amazon places four recommended ebooks at the bottom that takes up a bunch of room. Screenshots – To take screenshots tap the upper right and lower left corner simultaneously, or the upper left corner and lower right.
Format Conversion – Amazon will convert a number of formats to the Kindle format for free. Send to Kindle – Amazon makes it easy to send personal documents and ebooks to Kindles with their Send to Kindle apps. Book Progress Indicator – When reading a book, you can tap the book progress indicator in the lower left corner to switch between time left in chapter, to time left in book, as well as location.
If you want to permanently delete a book for good you have to login to your Amazon account and choose to delete the title from the list on the Manage Your Kindle page. Add Bookmarks – When reading, you can quickly add or remove bookmarks by tapping the top right corner of the page. Kindle Highlights on the Web – You can access and edit all your Kindle highlights and notes using a web browser. Send Web Pages to Kindle Paperwhite – Amazon recently released a Send to Kindle web browser extension for the Google Chrome web browser that lets users send web articles directly to a Kindle.
Homemade Magnetic Covers – If you already have a cover for your Kindle Paperwhite, you can simply stick a small magnet in the lower right corner to make use of the auto sleep, auto wake feature.
I have already had to use your reboot instructions due to extreme lag time during commands. Do you know any guides that take you through the different things you can do with your Kindle after jailbreaking? Try restarting and if that doesn’t fix it I would talk to Amazon support about sending a replacement.
Visually, the reading experience on the iPad is similar to that of reading on a computer screen.
The text isn't uniformly black; it's slightly fuzzy around the edges, the tips of the letters fade to gray and you can actually see the pixels if you look closely. Just be aware that each app has its own set of features and are separate programs so your library of books won't all be accessible in one location.
The voice is female and is fairly decent, but the cadence is really odd and hard to follow.
The only other features not mentioned so far is table of contents (provided the book has one) and a dimmer slide to adjust the brightness of the screen. And there's a separate section in the iBookstore for free ebooks from Project Gutenberg that are nicely formatted. It was just a blank slate asking to add ebooks, but I could not access any of my purchased ebooks anywhere. It’s amazing how a little detail like having the wrong date entered can make a Kobo ebook reader unfunctional. The slight increase in screen size and resolution is going to make very little difference with PDFs given Kobo’s sub-par functionality in that department. However, making any kind of font size change took so long that each time I tried it, I thought the reader had frozen up! Does anyone else have a few tiny holes in their light guide that cause light to shine out of them much more brightly than the rest?
I have to do the most delicate, point-of-thumb tap ever, but I can use hyperlinks in my side-loaded epub now.
When you tilt the device at an extreme angle the front light layer really looks weird when looking from the top down. However, I do notice that the light colour at the top of the screen is a shade more yellow than at the bottom (which is more bluish).

They are only as important as you think they are, that is, if the bug you, return the unit. Sure I have to find some shade on bright days, but no way I am giving up all the buttery smoothness and functionality just to read. After two years of use with few issues, my Kobo Touch was giving me all sorts of random errors: weird cover pages, lost bookmarks, strange home page.
It’s crazy how such a little thing like the wrong date can make the Kobo behave so badly.
The one thing that concerns me about this device’s release is how much Kobo modeled it after a Kindle.
We also share information about your use of our site with our social media, advertising and analytics partners. Yes, it will read eBooks, yes, it has always on connectivity (Sprint at launch) but it is also a larger form factor than we’ve seen previously and is really aiming for magazines and large print content. Word is that this device will not only have Sprint connectivity, but also WiFi, and that Sprint will probably be rolling these out in stores.
Based on purely unscientific results from talking to folks on my trip to Chicago, many consumers aren’t paying attention just yet. If it was in the same box as a convertible laptop, that would be best, assuming it was thin and lightweight. It’s crazy that there are people out there willing to pay that much money for a black-and-white E Ink PDF reader.
However, I have already used countless hours trying to read large format PDFs (academic papers with significant amount of complex illustrations) and documents comfortably on multiple devices. Due to the donkey thinking of Sony I don’t think i will get this product , I waited more than 6 months now. You don’t have to use the exact dictionaries that come with your Kindle, you can install other ones from the Kindle Store as well. Plus it takes you right back to reading when you turn it back on instead of requiring a swipe of the screen. They get saved on the root of the Kindle drive and you have to plug it into a computer to access them. You just have to tap them to activate them, even though they may just look like regular text.
Partial is faster and doesn’t have the black flash when turning pages but once every sixth page, but full is better for clearer, crisper text.
All you have to do is use a Send to Kindle app (below) or email them to the Kindle’s free email address (#12). Last year I reviewed their black woodgrain skin for the Kindle Touch and it was quite nice.
I’m not sure, but it seems the lower my battery gets, the more technical difficulties I have been having. Downloading EPUBs with the Safari web browser on the iPad itself will not work for this app. Once iTunes recognizes the iPad, it will sync your ebooks if you have auto-sync set-up, otherwise you'll need to manually sync. There are 5 options for font type: Baskerville, Cochin, Palatino, Times New Roman, and Verdana. Choosing bookmark highlights the word, or you can move the blue circles to expand the highlighted portion. Using this feature is very cumbersome as it requires you to use a whole different set of on-screen touch commands.
There's no jump to page but there is a slider at the bottom of the screen that works just as well.
I like being able to easily find the best free ebooks available in addition to the top selling. Even when I ran a search for a specific title that I had purchased, I could not download it, just re-purchase it. Then I checkd the light level and it had turned itself to 1% (note I am blaming it!)…so just to be sure even if you didnt turn it down look and see? They really need to implement a cloud or archive option instead of automatically downloading everything by default.
They are like tiny, focused points of white light that can be seen when examining the display. It looks just like a Kindle Paperwhite, the overall features are very similar and the 4GB of storage space and no expansion slot is another striking similarity.
That opened another page that initially gave me the impression my download would start momentarily, instead, another page opened, displaying the product description PDF file from Adobe. And the real annoyance is Sony won’t let them sell the device to just anyone who wants to buy one. I’ve spent hours to days (yes!) reformatting something just to make it easier to read.
Everytime I see a good webpage, I convert it to PDF format and send it to a BOX folder that is synchronized to my Sony ereader.
Target an exclusive market to differentiate and create a cult (which judging from the comments above is clearly working). Restarting is the first thing you should do if your Kindle ever starts acting slow or unusual.
If you are having problems with sections of the text appearing less bold on parts of the page, try switching to full page refresh. And it shows how many pages are left in the chapter on the bottom right of the page, as well as the title of the book on top the page. Another way to browse the store is by featured categories, where each genre's homepage lists the latest releases, among other quick links. Even though it has been connected several times in the last couple of months, it didn’t sync the time and date properly. THAT page informed me that the software would be the best ebook reader software for Adobe PDF-ebooks. Who knows, I may have already spent weeks to months of my life in such unnecessary efforts. I always highlight stuff and never thought that there would be a way to access those without going into the books. Content creators have all these options available to them to bring about a new form of digital media creation and distribution.
I went into settings and changed the default language to Spanish but the dictionary still would not work for Spanish words. There isn’t even pinch zooming or any custom margin cropping features, just fit to width and fit to height. The best thing about Kobo is having a good alternative to the Kindle, not having a Kindle clone. No other formats are mentioned, so it's safe to assume that if the download had started, I would have been disappointed because I have exactly NO PDF-ebooks.
Combine that with the iPad's interactive touchscreen and innovative interface for a truly unique user experience. I had one little light guide hold on my Kindle PW but it was more out of the way at the very bottom margin of the display. But again, this is just me being extremely picky, and I’m thinking that this is a problem common with light guides.
