The new book release (Alizant) is still set for the 1st. For those of you who’ve never tried e-books, remember you and your printer can turn one of our e-books into paper. Just print out the pdf. Or use the html and your own word processor to convert it into any size format you like. [...]
This from a reader: “http://www.mobipocket.com/dev/beta/j2me.asp, an early release of software… will read .mobi / .prc files on a regular cell phone that supports java, in my case, a Sony Ericsson C510.”
