Introduction to EBook v3.0 for Nokia Communicator 9200 Series (9210/9290)

EBook is an electronic book (e-text/e-book) viewer. It supports Palm DOC (Aportis) documents, which are normally used on Palm Computing devices, TCR documents, regular text documents (i.e. ".txt" files, which most word processors can create) and simple HTML viewing. Although primarily designed as a book reader EBook may also be used as a general document viewer but it does not support document formats such as EPOC Word, MS Word or PDF.

EBook for Nokia supports the Nokia Communicator 9200 Series, i.e. 9210 & 9290.

This program is a port of EBook for EPOC. You can visit the EPOC site here

What are e-texts/e-books and what is Palm DOC?

E-texts and e-books are electronic versions of books and documents. Palm DOC is a document format that is used to stores these books in a compressed format. It originated on the Palm PDAs a number of years ago and there is now a vast library available on the Internet. Go to the EText Links page for web sites.

You can download EBook from the Download page.
