eBook Reader Review


Recently, I wrote about the ability of daily news eReaders Nook and Sony to manage the ePub standard, a file format which is rapidly becoming the preferred file format for the e-book publishers. I thought it might help if I explained the differences between proprietary formats and ePub standard, something you will not find reviews of e-book readers, but something you should remember when searching many eReaders on the market, before the final purchase decision.

It was in the early days of digital book readers, something accepted by the consuming public as Sony and Amazon have released their content encoded in its own file format. What this fact was connected to an electronic book device, but it was not long before customers caught in something that has hit the likes of Sony.

However, fast forward now, the industry has been looking for a standard file format in the first place eliminate the uncertainty in the minds of customers and secondly to what the title suggests, standardization of electronic publishing.

This is seen increasingly as was established in the format of the emerging electronic publishing. Why, you may ask, with so many options that some of the biggest names in the industry, given its weight behind this new format, it was, some say, a perfectly well in the form of universal Mobipockets file formats available. Which is really a question that the likes of Google, Sony and now Barnes and Noble can answer.

Looking from the outside, it seems that the three are combined to give a good slap for Amazon, because their latest offering — the Kindle and Kindle e-book readers US international. Without natural support for the standard ePub.

In addition, the latest edition of the Sony range of digital book readers, which, incidentally, received rave reviews from eBook reader and the new Barnes and Noble device reading corner all compatible with the ePub format. Titles in both the Sony store and Barnes and Noble bookstore are published online in this format, something that both companies are happy to sing the praises of.

Now throw into the mix of the considerable influence of Google have it all online and display their recent support ePub format. They plan to publish all of his immense library of more than a million books in ePub format, many of these titles are free to down load.

These developments have created the mass market. Users are no longer e-book readers to purchase content from a source, this move can only lead to more competition and lower prices in the end of eBooks. And the thing is encouraging three large companies have fully accepted, even encouraged it.

This leaves the digital book readers Kindle in a very difficult position, news travels at the same speed as prices change in this industry. Foreign customers feel cheated when the news comes to the examination of e-book reader sites and all the rights that you have to feel that way you do not think.
