Nokia N900 Needs a commercial ebook reader

Posted on 2010-01-12 02:51 UTC by Hugh Caley. Status: Under consideration, Categories: Media.

There are currently no commercial ebook readers (an ebook reader that can read DRM content) available for the N900.  And we cannot rely on the old standby that any Linux program is potentially an N900 program since there is no commercial ebook reader for Linux either ;)

Solutions for this brainstorm

Posted on 2010-01-12 02:55 UTC by Hugh Caley. has a reader for PalmOS.  We might be able to run the Palm version of eReader in GarnetVM.  However, this seems like a very clumsy way to do it.

There are also Symbian versions of eReader, and perhaps Nokia is working on some way to emulate them, or has some kind of cross-platform toolkit that would make re-compilation for the N900 possible?
