You're a pretty typical new ereader. From what you've said, you bought an
ereader and want to start reading ebooks, but there aren't many
instructions or a 'how to do this' tutorial. So, forgive me if my reply is
First, don't believe the hype. There is stuff in the background that's
pretty technical. And it's stuff that makes the difference whether you can
use the T1 easily or not.
Next, there are particular steps you have to take in the process of
establishing a hookup to a source for ebooks. Adobe Digital Editions is
part of that process because the publishing industry has set some standard
formats, and Digital Editions has been selected as the primary software to
Third, and most important, each manufacturer of an ereader has something
proprietary built into it that will work on their sites, but not
necessarily on third party sites. And there are lots of third party sites.
Starting at the beginning, you need to register the hardware with the
vendor - in this case, you should have some instructions in your package
with the T1 that tell you how to go online to the SONY website and register
your T1. You'll have to use a User ID and a password to do this, and that
information will be key later on, when you try to go to SONY's Reader Store
or to a third party website. After you've registered, the SONY website
will try to link you to the SONY Reader Store, and will want you to
download your ebooks from there. That's OK, because it will be very easy
for you to follow their instructions.
If you want to go to a third party site to get an ebook, you'll have to
figure out what software is going to be involved. Lots of websites are out
there, and you can do a Search on the Internet and find maybe 500 - or
5,000. The problems that you'll encounter have to do with how those
websites transfer ebooks to you. Some will link directly to your T1.
Others will call upon Digital Editions to interface with your T1 - and
right now, Digital Editions does not support the T1 (check the list of
you'll go no farther with Digital Editions until they check the T1 out and
do what they need to do to support it. Who knows when that will be....
The other place you might want to go is to the library. Most libraries
will want you to use some form of software such as Digital Editions,
Overdrive or Bluefire Reader. You should discuss what your library wants
you to use with their technical support people. Some will download
directly to your ereader, and that would be the best situation.
Summing up, now that you have the ID for SONY, check out their website and
get ebooks from there for now. Learn how the process works and enjoy
reading! The rest can come later, after you've figured out what's involved
and how it all works for you.
