Suggestion addon to Sansa e200 series (by firmware if possible)

Hi.

 

Quick suggestion as an addon to the Sansa E200 series.

 

An Ebook (PDF) reader. Similar to the ones seen on generic MP4 (PMP) players.

 

Would be a bit simpler to have such an option for number lists, URLs and other long winded and difficult to remember daily information that you don't have on your cell phone or $$$ Blackberry.

 

Only a thought. 

 

 

As for other suggestions:

 

Provide a 120vac and or 12vdc (automobile) charger with the Sandisk PMP's.

 

Better support for the FREEZE-ing up of Sandisk PMP's 

 

Thanks.

Hi.

 

I do something similar already with Corel Draw and export to JPG.

 

It did take a while to get the right (crisp) font RES/DPI . However it came out nice.

 

Thanks for link, very interesting read.

 

Almost forgot. I made a video of a sequence of text pages and added that to my 260. You can scroll (so to speak) and it acts like an instructional video on youtube.

I've used a program called ebook to images to do something similar in the past.  It worked okay.  You can experiment with different font sizes and faces, portrait and landscape modes, black on white or white on black, etc., until you find something you're comfortable reading.  You're really better off with a model with a bigger screen, but it does work.  (A use for a video out feed?)
