An apology to Kindle…

Sorry for dissing you Kindle

Author Boy, Brendan Halpin, straightened me out on Kindle’s format reading capabilities. They go beyond the Kindle format alone, and you are not limited to Whispernet for downloads. You can access other eBooks via a USB cable. Also, Amazon converts Word files and structured html files for a small fee.

Kindle supports Mobipocket books (MOBI, .PRC), plain text files, and their own proprietary DRM-restricted format (AZW). Not completely supportive of PDF but they’re working on it. Third party software can correct this PDF thing more easily.

Many thanks… Author Boy.

p.s. Kindle’s eBooks are still too expensive…
