The KNFB Reader Mobile only runs on a Nokia N82 at the current time.  This is 
because the N82 has a 5 megapixel camera and a xenon flash which provide the 
quality picture needed for accurate OCR.  The phone runs on the Symbian 60 3rd 
Edition operating system and works on GSM networks such as AT&T and T-Mobile.  
There are no phones on Verizon or Sprint that currently meet the specifications 
for the Reader.

  Is this the same model of Nokia phone that the new KNFB reader is sold with?  
Would you happen to know if that reader can run on other phones?

    I'm using Talks with a Nokia e65 which is a quad band phone and supposedly 
    can work anywhere in the world. I know it has another setting in addition 
    GSM but can't remember what its called.
