You say Astak is a Team Research Division, so you do customize the firmware for the PP? I know that the hardware is the same as the bebook and hanlin v3, but what exactly does Astak do that sets it apart from Endless Ideas or Jinkie?
I saw Robert you mentioned you were going to announce something within the next few days, and the post was the 18th? Hopefully it is a price cut or free shipping. I'll place my order after the announcement is made!
Looking forward to becoming part of the Astak EZ Reader PP community,
I wouldn't wait for a price cut. I would be worried the current price won't last. The announcement is not related to eBook Readers directly. There are clues in the pre-announcement that will guide you as to what to expect related to content.
They do not customize the eBook reader besides the logos and opening/closing screens. However, they do work closely with Jinke on features and fixes and may get releases ahead of other vendors. They also do a quick test before posting updates. But overall they will all get the same features eventually. The firmware is interchangeable between the various brands.
