ePublishing Tools: Webhosting Content for Mobile Devices - Some prices
(Page 5 of 5 )
As with any project you take up, cost is of utmost importance. Acrobat is releasing versions very fast, so itís best for you to get a quote from their website. If youíre a small publisher, maybe youíd prefer going for open source tools like Ghost Script because Adobe charges per PC license, and thatís expensive.
For Microsoft tools itís all free because itís distributed under a Free Software License. I have never tried writing to the Reader support, but I believe itíd be good.
Finally, for the Mobipocket and ReaderWorks tools the table below lists the prices. (Sources www.mobipocket.com and www.overdrive.com ).
Mobipocket Reader 4.8 Standard
Mobipocket Reader 4.8 Pro
Mobipocket Creator 4.0 Home Edition
