Pocketbook Global to lauch PB302 ebook reader at CeBIT

Pocketbook Global, the world's third largest ebook manufacturer, will be attending CEBIT in Hannover, Germany, from march 2 to 6. This is new company that is the result of the merger of  OEM hardware producer Netronix and software and hardware developer Pocketbook, thus enabling Pocketbook Global to offer today's best in software and hardware as far as ebook readers are concerned.

Pocketbook Global plans to offer more than 20 different readers by the end of this year. In Hannover, the following devices will be available in Hall 14/15 Stand D09:

• The Pocketbook 301+, a highly reliable device with 6” screen and featuring the feature rich PocketBook firmware
• The PB360°, a stylish, essentially mobile reader with 5” screen and a hard cover that makes it a “real” sturdy pocket book
• The PB302, a newly developed 6” E-Ink reader with all the bells and whistles of a modern device including touchscreen, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and USB host capability.

The PB302 features an on board ebook store with an incorporated pay system that makes it possible to shop online without ever needing to use a computer. In this shop, called Bookland (www.bookland.net), Pocketbook also offers a wealth of free books in English, German and French. The official launch of the PB302 will take place at the CEBIT on march 5 at a press conference opening at 10 am.

Of course, everyone is invited to come see us at our booth for a friendly chat and a demo of our devices. See you at the CEBIT!

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
