Does anyone know if the Kindle can use CBR & CBZ files i.e. comics? Idf not is there a e-reader out there that does support these file formats oranother way around the situation?

HELP please.


Just what i was about to make a post on, im wondering how the kindle handles CBR's and if it has a good enough contrast for viewing.

Hi people!

I got a question, and I figure this is the right topic to ask it.

So I'm looking for something to read and write electronic texts (eBook, etc).
It must be light, small, highly portable. I got me a Laptop, just it's too big and heavy to carry around all the time.

About the price, the cheaper the better!
Now a lot of people on the internet recommends Kindle, as an e-reader I'm all sold on it. It's cheap, good battery life, light, and small. But I wonder if I can write/create a whole new text document with it.

So, any thoughts? Any recommendations? Any tips?
Anything is appreciated. Please help. Thanks Anyway!

For writing docs, you may be better off with a tablet. Not sure what others views are or whether they would agree...

I'm in a similar situation and have decided a tablet is the way to go. On October second Comic Rack came out for Android. Out of all the Android tablets I've looked at I prefer the Asus Transformer for price and funtionality, but I hesitate buying one now since rumors abound that the Transformer 2 is right around the corner.

dont settle for an e reader, get a tablet, ipad or android, and use that - so much closer to the comic book experience

Agreed! Comics are best read on a larger screen as they are better on the eyes.

I got a HP TouchPad when they had their fire sale, love it as an e-reader for mags and comics whenever I'm traveling.

I agree, I've recently got myself a HPTP and love reading my comics on it.

I have been using an Asus Transformer TF101 for over six months now and I am very pleased with it. Perfect viewer works great for reading comics, it also comes with Polaris office so you can create MS office compatible documents.

Best bet is a tablet, one that runs google OS or iOS (iPad)

New iPad looks gorgeous with comics; you can pick up a plethora of apps for it that can do books, comics, pdf files, etc.

I've tried both the Android and Apple devices,the only core difference is that the Apple devices don't natively support Flash,which is too bad if you want to stream video from sites that aren't Youtube.

Okay same question here, I'm looking for something to read Comics and Books on, pereferably under 200 Bucks.

I'm from germany so Nook Color and Kindle Fire are out since they aren't sold over here (didn't we have a thing called globalization? xD). I'm thinking about getting a friend from the US to get me a Nook Color but it would be very complicated if it didn't work etc. so I'm really not surre :/
