Some pocketbooks I could get for $279 on amazon, but those models are already phased out (and due to firmware issues replaced by more expensive models).

There's a difference between announcements they make on tech websites, having a window of a few months to purchase them from a local website; and having the device commercially available for all (which is what it looks like Ectaco will do, seeing their other electronic devices they have for sale for many months to years).

Most readers either never make it to the market, or finally get phased out by a newer model, and companies selling off their small stock to fund for the research of perhaps another device, or close the doors on the debts they gotten themselves into while researching and creating such a device.
I already explained you above that color in your case is a drawback not a bonus feature.
Other that color eInk you have no argument for that 100$ more, yet you do not realize that many potential buyers have a problem with paying 400$ for a regular ereader that would offer lots more features.
You keep repeating the "color" mantra while everybody here is telling you that at least Onyx is ages ahead. That was said by somebody who has the device and could compare it with many others.
