Under Rated Star
Mobipocket for eLibrary
Scott Pendergrast from Libwise/Fictionwise: MS Reader and Palm Reader can't support the Library model because they don't support the time out feature. Only Adobe (PCs only) and Mobipocket can at this time. Adobe has an advantage because of huge name recognition, but Mobipocket is far stronger because it supports virtually all PDAs and PCs (and soon Macs). Mobipocket has even put in a beaming feature for us, so now a library with our product can lend ebooks both on the web as well as in the physical library via beaming (it would be too hard to have a dozen different cradles setup in a library -- so beaming is the solution).
Libwise -- the Fictionwise product -- just launched in October and the reaction has been very favorable. We'll soon launch the 2.0 version of the product then we start marketing heavier at the big library meeting (ALA) in January.
You might want to take a look at the KnowBetter.com library, which is powered by Libwise.
