Wear is said to not offer enough for mass adoption, even though its been in the market for over 9 months. I personally have a Gear Live which I purchased 8 months ago, and my experience with it has had its ups and downs throughout my time with it.

[APP] Freda – a new ebook reader
[UPDATE: See http://forum.xda-developers.com/show….php?p=7141176 in this thread for an updated version of the program, with links to new screen shots and documentation]
I’ve written a program for reading eBooks on Windows Mobile devices. It can read txt, html and (DRM-free) ePub files.
For other formats you can use Calibre to convert them epub.
The program is called ‘Freda’ – short for ‘free reader’, since it is free software (both in the sense of ‘free beer’, as I am not charging for it, and in the sense of ‘free speech’, as I am licensing my code under the GPL).
You can find more information in the application thread.
