MiGear e-reader gets an update – adds support for Adobe DE DRM

This is an ereader that I haven’t covered yet, but you might recognize it. It’s based on the same hardware as the Skytex Primer, which I reviewed a couple months ago. The only real difference is that Skytex are a US company and MiGear are Australian. It’s also available in the US under the brand E-matics.

This is a basic ereader based on a 7? LCD screen (no Wifi or touchscreen). Ebook support includes PDF Epub, FB2. It also is a decent video player.

I pointed out the similarity in hardware because in a few minutes I’m going to go try to install this update on the unit I have. Hopefully I should be able to install it.

Update: I've heard from my contact with Skytex,sellers of the Primer. They also plan to release a firmware update for the Primer.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
