BlackBerry Cool readers get 25% off eBooks at Fictionwise


blackberry navigation for ereader

Personally, I’ve never read an entire book on my BlackBerry, but I might just give it a try. Viigo is a part of my daily reading habits and if the font size were right, and the interface was clean, I could see myself going through a full eBook on my BlackBerry.

If you want to try it out, or you’re looking for another book, Fictionwise are offering BlackBerry Cool readers 25% off with the coupon code “blackberrycool25″ (sans quotes). The coupon is good until the 30th of November.

Some instructions from Fictionwise:

For Fictionwise.com customers, every MultiFormat (unencrypted) eBook and every Secure eReader eBook will work on your BlackBerry. When you log in to your Fictionwise.com account from your BlackBerry, note that you will only see listed those eBooks that work with eReader for BlackBerry. You will not be shown eBooks that don’t work, such as Secure Microsoft Reader eBooks, etc. If you see it on your BlackBerry, you can download and read it.

RIM removes first application from App World


When Apple’s App Store launched it started pulling certain apps from the store that violated their terms of service. This was a real pain for some developers who felt that Apple wasn’t being clear enough about the rules. Well it seems RIM is in a similar situation and has removed their first application.

Wattpad’s eReader was one of the first applications to go live on RIM’s BlackBerry App World—and now it’s one of the first to be taken down over concerns about copyright infringement. Wattpad is a user-generated content site which lets people upload their own stories to share, and suffers the same problem most user-generated sites have of people uploading content they that’s copyrighted. It’s unclear whether the application was removed due to a specific complaint or a general uneasiness over its content—RIM’s vendor guidelines don’t mention user-generated content, but they do dwell on the importance of complying with intellectual property law.



Free eReader BETA application for BlackBerry



The eBook retailer Fictionwise, which was recently acquired by Barnes & Noble, is beta testing the release of eReader for BlackBerry. The eReader software enables BlackBerry users to download and read their eBooks anytime and anyplace, and offers an interactive OTA shopping experience.

To try eReader for BlackBerry, point your BlackBerry browser to m.ereader.com.


Another app to read books from your BlackBerry



Bla1ze has a good tip on a new BB app called eReader. eReader is an app that has finally been ported to BlackBerry and is now in Beta form. Like ShortCover, eReader is an app that lets you read books from your mobile. The biggest drawback is that it does not let you purchase the books from the app itself.

Try out the BETA and grab the app OTA here.
