Did somebody test the new ebook readers ?
I'm thinking about Amazon's Kindle.
Is it possible to read manga on this ?
great question, I looked into it and yes you can, but you have to hack the damn thing and I'm not sure the kindle can display colours, so if you have any colour pages it will probably just display it in black and white.
this is what I found:
I’m not sure why Amazon didn’t make it public (maybe because paging is kinda slow), but there is a basic picture viewer in Kindle.
To activate it:
1) make a folder called “pictures” in the root of Kindle drive or SD card. Kindle also checks for “dcim” made by cameras.
2) put your pictures for a single “book” into a folder inside that. The subfolder name will be used as the “book” name. Supported formats are jpg, png, gif.
3) in Home screen press Alt-Z. A new “book” should appear. Open it to view your pictures.
4) In the local menu you can toggle dithering, resize to fit and full screen mode.”
I’m not sure if it’s the “make a folder” part, “put your images” in it part, or the “press Alt-Z” part that requires too much technical knowledge… *cough*
