Upgrading my eReader – Kobo GloHD
After long time of dear service, I have decided to exchange my Kobo Glo to a new device, the Kob GloHD. The reasons are simple: higher resolution, better reading quality.
While the photos are not showing these details, the quality of the screen is definitely much better …
I have now read a few hours with the new device, both Japanese and English books, and the crispness of the letters has definitely improved. Very nice. Together with the new device came a new firmware, only released in Japan, 3.16.10. Of course it can be found on MobileRead. As with previous version, I will prepare a MegaPack containing nickel patches, ssh, custom dicts, etc etc, please wait a bit longer until KSM compatibility with the new firmware is perfect again.
Talking of dictionaries: The new version brings a few more dicts, especially there are now two English-Japanese dictionaries, and a much more complete Japanese dictionary.
Unfortunately, as before, there is no Japanese-English dictionary. Till now I have used Tshering’s excellent Japanese dictionary which was enriched with English definitions. But the new version brought a new dictionary that is much more complete:
I have already a script ready that enriches this new big dictionary automatically with definitions from the Edict project, so everyone can now update his own dictionary easily. I will write a blog entry about this soon.
That’s it for the moment, back to reading. I love the new device, and will surely post many articles about it in the future!
