The device is primarily designed to be used as an eBook reader but offers a great deal more; the Readme Mobile natively supports the file formats of TXT, PDF, HTML, CHM, RTF, FB2, EPUB, TCR, OPEN E-BOOK, OPEN READER and MOBI.

Readme Mobile can also be used to access email, browse the web and listen to music, watch videos and view images too and all whilst running from Android ‘Éclair’ 2.1.
