More MS Reader DRM woes
WM5 Pocket PCs Cannot Read DRMed MS Reader eBooks
Janak Parekh reports at PocketPCthoughts that WM5 Phone Edition devices cannot read secure MS-Reader ebooks:
It seems like Microsoft Reader is an afterthought at this point. In retrospect, I shouldn't have been surprised. Reader isn't the responsibility of the Mobile Devices team -- it's a completely separate group within Microsoft -- and with the lukewarm reception of ebooks (due to publisher reticence, DRM complications, and a number of other factors), I wouldn't be surprised if it just stops being maintained completely some day. I had high hopes for Reader -- of all the ebook tools out there I liked its typography the best -- but as soon as I saw Reader not present in 2003SE's ROM I stopped using it, and now primarily use MobiPocket (the fact that MobiPocket has a Smartphone reader also helped my decision), and buy from Fictionwise, which offers ebooks in multiple formats.
Now you are warned! As usual, read the whole thing at the source.
