Is there anywhere that sells the Pocketbook either in or shipping to the UK? I've looked at the German site, but unfortunately it rather defeated my linguistic abilities.

The onlineshop My-Ebook-Reader.de is shipping to the UK (15,- shipping costs): http://www.my-ebook-reader.de/epages/62330792.sf/de_DE/?ObjectPath=/Shops/62330792/Categories/CustomerInformation

The site is only in German, but if you mail them (info@my-ebook-reader.de) they'll probably be able to give you more details in English as well.

Received my Pocketbook 360 today, after ordering it from Yar on Monday. Great service - thanks, Yar!

Congratulations Harry.
I am looking forward to your review.
Do not forget to download FBReader compiled by SciFiFan so you can turn pages using a small movement of the device.

Not a big fan of FBReader, I'm afraid. I prefer to convert all my books to ePub and read with ADE.

Excellent.
In all the reviews the ADE reader is one of least discussed applications.

FBReader is actually very good with Epub.This is something of a surprise because its Mobi abilities are still utter dreck.

Oh well, maybe I'll take a look at it in that case. Thanks for the tip!

The best thing about the fbreader as far as I can see is the ability to have more control over the margins and font - especially the font sizing. And all of this can be done on the fly right in the middle of whatever you're reading, just press the OK button and then select settings. I'm still comparing the two readers on the pocketbook but I think fbreader wins for me as better customization so far.

Congrats HarryT. I envy you. :( I placed my order late last week and it's still not here yet, and I'm just across the border.
Enjoy your pocketbook. :)

I paid the $US94 for "expedited shipping" :).

Is there any chance you could post a comparison of your Opus and the PocketBook?

I'd be very interested to know what you think of the merits of the two (or have you posted a comparison and I've not noticed?).

Thanks!

Thanks!

Once I've used it for a few days, I'll be more than happy to do so.
