It turns out that Augen's website has been down for over a month. I'm not getting any responses to any of the emails I sent - not from either of the Augen email accounts I know. I asked about the problems with their website, and they said nothing. I didn't even get a response when I asked them if the company had died.
I know that's not based on anything solid, and there really isn't any proof. But the company looks dead to me.
That's a pity. I was looking forward to Augen's line of tablets and their new ebook readers. Last fall Augen unveiled a line of 6 tablets ranging from entry level to a couple high end models. They were quite pretty and I admired the ambitiousness of trying to get 6 devices on the market all at once. And then there were Augen's ebook readers, which were supposed to be shipping in April. I was so looking forward to them.
