I can't read Ukrainian, but I watched the video on their site and skimmed through some google-translated text. And it made me weep to see all those beautiful functions on a netronix device. They explicitly said it's a Netronix, maybe not eb-100 though. It makes you wonder what could have been, if it wasn't for *someone's* inaptitude.
From what I've seen, it has better use of screen real estate (no overblown margins, header, footer), on-screen keyboard, text lookup, you can probably write your own notes, better bookshelf design, really nice graphical main menu, ability to switch between landscape and portrait with reflow, text highlighting.
These are the specs:

It's not so much different from the cybook if at all. I'm not sure if the amount of RAM is the same, the processor is definitely the same.
I don't see even the new bookeen's firmware update getting anywhere close to this one, no offence, I'm all up for a pleasant surprise.

Does anyone know if it supports utf encoding or some other than ukrainian encoding?
Do you think it would be possible to get pocketbook FW on gen3 cybook? I'm even prepared to shell out some solid cash for it. Oh, I want this FW sooo badly.
