Interested on comic eBook reading? I do. I came across with CBR and CBZ files most of the time and decided to start downloading them and burn them on a CD. CBR is actually a RAR file containing images that have a filename structure that makes them viewable in the right order. CBZ is the same principle except they are ZIP files. These filetypes are generally Comix and CDisplay is generally known as a Comic Reader.
The image above is a screenshot of History Of the DC Universe, my present reading and my kids as well. Too bad that CBR and CBZ reader for symbian phones is not yet available and I can’t bring it anywhere I go. There’s a way though to view it on my symbian phone… convert CBR/CBZ file to PDF but I don’t like using PDF viewer on mobile phone. That’s an advantage for Windows Mobile phone users because there are various available CBR and CBZ readers. On PC, there are freeware available. I’m currently using Gonvisor. I will try testing Comic eBooks using Gonvisor on PSP soon. Do I have to mention that my main goal on ebook reading is making the ebooks handy anywhere I go?
Since I don’t have Windows Mobile phone, I am contented reading them on PC… better resolution, wide screen. The only disadvantage is electricity usage. I wonder if the person who pirated Bob Ong’s eBooks knew this.
