What is an eBook?
eBooks are real books. Books aren't paper, print and binding. They're the inspiration and perspiration; the ideas and concepts; the love and labor of people who have to communicate with others. Paper is nothing more than the way many of those books are packaged and delivered.
Although the fundamental reading experience between an eBook and a conventional paper book is the same, there are special benefits of eReader.com eBooks not found in paper books.
What do I need?
You need one of the following mobile devices: Palm OS, Windows Mobile Pocket PC (Professional), Windows Mobile Smartphone (Standard), Symbian Series 60 or Symbian UIQ. You can also read eBooks on a Windows PC/Notebook, Apple Macintosh or an OQO Ultra Portable Computer. eReader eBooks are carefully prepared to maximize the reading experience. Because we believe that the convenience and portability of an eBook should match or exceed that of the conventional paper medium, we continue to focus on the mobile devices (sometimes called a PDA or smartphones) as the best choice for eBooks.
