eReader Beta – Free eBook Reader For BlackBerry (Storm Compatible)

bb_navigation I use MobiPocket every day to read books but I am always open to alternatives. Chonka let me know that eReader has released a BlackBerry client for their eBook store. I remember eReader back from my Windows Mobile and Palm OS days so it is a bit of a flash from the past. Their website is in desperate need of a redesign but the application seems to be working quite well. I would offer screenshots but every time I try to take them it crashes my Mac (VMware Fusion/XP). Hopefully somebody can send some in!

The cool part about this eReader beta is that is has controls specifically for the Storm. The eReader eBook reader is free but the application to create the eBooks yourself is not. On the other hand they use a eReader .PDB (Palm) file if I remember correctly that I think a few free eBook makers can create… Not positive though.

You can pick up the eReader BlackBerry eBook reader OTA at this link or you can read more about it on their website at this link.

  1. You may want to also check out ShortCovers, a new mobile application that lets one browse, purchase, and read the latest books on their BlackBerry. Storm is supported.

    I have it installed on my 8900 and the process is pretty seamless and comparable to the Mobipocket experience.

    ShortCovers can be found at

    Happy Reading,


  2. I tried downloading to my 8820 and it would not let me. I tried several times and got the same error message.

  3. I am going to need a desktop .zip download for this one. It’s a whopping 1Mb and the connection to that site is impossibly slow. The download has been canceled on me 6 times. I give up.
