Pandigital Novel shows up again as the Pocketbook IQ

I was just working on a post about Pocketbook (they announced the prices for their new ereaders). I was looking at old posts on other blogs to see if I'd missed a detail, and I noticed something. I can't beleive I missed this the first time around.

Engadget were using this image for their post on the Pocketbook announcement. When you look at it full size, it's quite obvious that the Pocketbook IQ is a close relative of the white Pandigital Novel (and the Cruz Reader). The only difference between the Pocketbook IQ and the Cruz Reader that I can see is that the IQ has 3 buttons under the screen (home, menu, back).

I'm a little surprised. I had thought Pocketbook would use an exclusive design.

BTW, the price for the IQ will be 159€ (in Europe, at least), and it will be available in Germany in November.

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."
