Send to Pocketbook Delivers eBooks Right to Your e-Reader

Sending eBooks to your e-Reader is becoming a fairly popular endeavor for people who have more then one device, or browse for free ones online while at work or school to read later. Amazon has had a number of successful Send to Kindle plugins written by indie developers until the company made their own. Since then, hundreds of thousands of users are sending documents and eBooks right to their devices. Pocketbook is going to follow this trend by releasing a “Send to Pocketbook” firmware update this October.

Send-to-PocketBook will support a multitude of formats, including: EPUB DRM, EPUB, PDF DRM, PDF, FB2, FB2.ZIP, TXT, DJVU, HTM, HTML, DOC, DOCX, RTF, CHM, TCR, PRC, JPEG, BMP, PNG, TIFF.

The first e-reader to get this updated firmware will be the Pocketbook Touch Lux and Pocketbook Color Lux. Older devices should get the update in November, so there is hope for people with prior models. The service will also include security features such as “White List,” which is a list of e-mail addresses from which the eReader will receive documents to avoid spam mails.

    I would prefer support for Bluetooth instead – so that I could easily send stuff without going online, and without giving General Alexander & co. even more info about my private reading habits than they already have.
