What we do know is that the Astak Mentor will have the following features: Turn Page, Jump to Page, Progress Bar, Font Increasing, Bookmark, Zoom In, Zoom out, Slideshow, Delete File. Your suggestions help!! That is why we are putting out the info in this manner. We have preliminary samples made and have already made changes to "americanize it" (it is being released throughout the world). WE only know that at IDPF on May 14 we have to have working production samples.
The panel is the easy part. One of our partners is a panel manufacturer so getting panels is easy and they are committed.
The advance projected sales price for the 9.7 inch version is about $299-$349. It will allow an 8.5" by 11" page to read true, will come with WiFi/Bluetooth and Touch integrated, 4GB Enbedded, 3.5 stereo headphone jack, SDcard expansion slot, 1200 x 825 pixels, four programmable functional buttons, and a lot of other bells and whistles and lights. The operating system will be Win CE with splash screen on boot; and it will support English, Spanish, German, French, Chinese (Big 5), and Japanese. The release date for this unit is projected for August. The Li-ion battery will last ten years but is likely not user-changeable. I will place this suggestion.
I will find out for you about estimated cost for TouchScreen and the WiFi options on 5 inch and 6 inch! Will check on dictionary. Good suggestion!!
Pictures are not so easy as changes are still being made. It is an awesome gloss black front bezel with orange sides and back... very attractive. I am afraid to put up pictures as they may change between now and release.
