Inside the Pocketbook Color

Who wants to take a look under the hood of the newest color ereader?

I have not quite gotten up the courage to crack open the review unit Pocketbook sent me, but someone over at MobileRead noticed that Pocketbook has sent the Pocketbook Color through the FCC (back in June, in fact). All of the photos and other interesting details have been left in the public view, which means for example that we finally know what CPU went into the Pocketbook Color.

According to the internal photos (PDF), Pocketbook put a dual-core Allwinner B288 chip into the Pocketbook Color. Allwinner  is not what I would describe as a top of the line chip maker, but this ereader’s performance fully justifies this decision.
