    I installed it as well, but was disappointed as it wont read html txt or other formatsthan prc like it does on the win mobile platform. Unless there is something Im missing,but, teh libray dones not "see" those docs. That said, for reading ebooks, it works quite well and complimnets the great screen calrity of the 8130.

    I got mobireader installed too. I uses mnybks.net quite a bit to download free mobi e-books. Though you will have to download to your pc first and then transfer the files to the e-book folder of the micro-SD

    All in all, i'm quite satified with it since the site I posted have tons of cookbooks and related e-books which generally tends to be able to be useful even with a hundred years of differences in modern and past technology.

    P.S. The mnybks.net site I posted also have .jar file for downloads. Anybody knows how to get that to work on the 8100?

    i believe you have to install mobipocket creator to convert files so that they may be read by your mobipocket reader on your phone. it should be in that link i posted...search around. its a really good tool especially for students that have so much to print out and carry, like myself.

    Took me a while to figure out, you have to convert docs, pdfs etc via sync, but it works quite well. Would be nice ot be able to batch selelct multiple files for conversion, or entire folders nstead of one at a time, but ther it is. They read quite well on this screen. I have to say after years of an Ipaq, this screen though smaller is really sharp.
