Multimedia, AV Geeks.com sent us in one of their consumer electronics, the Linux-based Archos 604 PMP for a whirl, and we surely gave it one. This 30 GB PMP is the fourth generation video product from Archos, one of the biggest names in that market.

Is there any reason why they don't just add the software needed to make it an E-Book reader?

I have tons of stuff in HTML, and most can be converted to simple text if needed.

If you can handle HTML, PDF and text on something this size/weight/price I would love it. My laptop works fine if I am sitting down but is a pain to carry/read if I go on a walk.

The device has support for both PDF and HTML. But you will want to buy the newer A605, which sports an 800x480 screen and is cheaper.
