I noticed that fine print, too, and it almost dissuaded me from downloading it today. However, I did so, it appeared to download and install correctly, but when I run it... Nothing. A Blio splash screen for a couple seconds and then the Windows "clunk" sound of a program crashing. No error message, nothing. Am hoping others will have better results...

Hello all,

Well, the wait is over...at least for those on the Windows platform.
The Blio e-reader platform has launched and is available at the Blio site today:

Here is the press announcement that provides a few tidbits of information:

What I find a tad interesting is the small print on the Downloads page that says, "NOTE: An accessible version of Blio will be available for download in October."


I will be playing with it later, but anyone have any first impressions?

Take care,
