At first I was really excited, but then I recognized the hardware design. The case is new, but inside the case is hardware that was designed by Netronix. The design we're looking at is close to 4 years old, and wasn't very good to start with. How disappointing.
Why don't I like it? I have similar model right now, and the 4 buttons on the side are difficult to see, much less press. I have to turn the device sideways to see which one I'm touching. The d-pad is too low on the device for me to have my thumb on it when holding the device with one hand.
Yes, Pocketbook have put some great software on it, and so have Bookeen. But both have moved on to better designs, haven't they?
