The PBN Guide, also known as the Planet Netbook, was created to provide users with a compact, portable version of a full-featured laptop or tablet. In this article we take a look at the history of the creation and the current state of the project, as well as the benefits that it offers users. One of the main concerns that many people had when they were considering creating their own portable eBook reader was the size. As it turns out, there really isn’t much of a difference between this device and many others that you can buy for less than a couple hundred dollars.
The device itself is only a fraction of an inch thick (compared to 7.25 inches for the Kindle) and it can easily fit into a shirt pocket or any small space that you have on your person. You also don’t have to worry about carrying it in your back pocket or holding it in your hand. When you are finished reading a book or writing email to someone, simply unplug the device from its USB port and pop it into a small bag that easily fits in your purse. That’s about all there is to it!
The other concern that I had was the lack of downloadable resources. When it first came out there wasn’t even an eBook viewer available to download PDF files onto the PBN. This meant that many people were still dependent on their local library and their internet connection to be able to enjoy their books and articles. Now that the device has finally received its own eBook viewer, all of those worries should be put to rest. You can easily access thousands of books, articles, press releases, song lyrics, videos, web pages, podcasts, and a variety of other valuable resources right from your computer. It truly makes using your PBN a breeze.
