Since 03 March 2010 I own a BeBook One from Endless Ideas B.V. [1]. On this page I collect my experiences with this product trying to explain the Pro's and Con's.

Endless Ideas BV[edit]

First of all I think the producing company Endless Ideas B.V. is a little bit obscure. It has a website which contains the same name of their product, but the company behind the product is rather invisible. Why? I don't have the faintest idea!

DRM Support[edit]

Most important on eBook readers is which DRM [2] they support. In case of the BeBook the Adobe DRM (supports EPUB and PDF files ) is used. The older MobiPocket DRM can also be used when you downgrade the firmware to an older version. Please note that downgrading has to be done using an 1GB SD Card (not larger and also smaller than 512Mb).

Supported formats[edit]

BeBook One supports the following formats:

Format Format Format Format Format
AAC Adobe PDF 10.0 BMP DJVU EPUB
GIF HTML LIT MP3 Word
PRC PNG RAR RTF TIF
WOL MOBI    

Support[edit]

BeBook has several options to get more information. A complete coverage tutorial is not available, alas. But you can find some examples of the usage on the BeBook website.

Buying eBooks[edit]

Where can you buy your most wanted eBooks? The below list contains only references where Info can be found:

The list above is certainly not exhausted... To be continued shortly.


Organize[edit]

To organize knowledge (an e-book contains that kind of information) is terrible difficult. The Readers does not support any mechanism to make this easier for the user. This will certainly become an important battle in the eBook market. Strange the producers does not do anything about meta-information at this point.

  2. DRM, Digital Rights Management is a code that must be present in order for the reader to be able to open an eBook. The code may be locked to a particular device, or may be locked to a range of multiple devices. In other cases it is locked to a user. There is no standard implementation for DRM.
