Mobile Phone eBook Reader

A few months back, my friend and I were discussing about the possibility of creating a free eBook reader for Java enabled phones.

We were both very busy during that time so we had to postpone that plan.

This morning, while quickly browsing through the projects at java.net, I came across this link.

EBookME is application for creating and reading e-books on the mobile phones and other devices which supports JME (Java Micro Edition) with MIDP 1.0 profile. It consists of two parts:

  • reader core (JME)
  • standard Java (JSE) application which creates JME application packages. It puts together your texts and reader core.

Well, I guess somebody smarter/faster already did it for us. I hope to try it out within the next few weeks.

    Thanks for the link. For commercial mobile ebook readers, there’s also the Libris application available from Java.com developed by Hillbilly Interactive.
