Lightbulb Pocketbook Global launches new reader at CEBIT

Pocketbook Global, third biggest manufacturer of E-Ink readers in the world, will be present at the CEBIT exhibition in Hannover, Germany, from march 2 to 6. This new company is the result of the fusion of two highly successful companies in their own right, namely OEM hardware producer Netronix from China and creator of reader firmware and hardware Pocketbook from the Ukraine, thus enabling Pocketbook Global to offer today's best in software and hardware as far as ebook readers are concerned.

Pocketbook Global plans to offer more than 20 different readers by the end of this year. In Hannover, the following devices will be available in Hall 14/15 Stand D09:

• The Pocketbook 301+, a highly reliable device with 6” screen and featuring the feature rich PocketBook firmware
• The PB360°, a stylish, essentially mobile reader with 5” screen and a hard cover that makes it a “real” sturdy pocket book
• The PB302, a newly developed 6” E-Ink reader with all the bells and whistles of a modern device including touchscreen, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity and USB host capability.

The PB302 features an onboard ebook store with an incorporated pay system that makes it possible to shop online without ever needing to use a computer. In this shop, called Bookland (www.bookland.net), Pocketbook also offers a wealth of free books in English, German and French. The official launch of the PB302 will take place at the CEBIT on march 5 at a press conference opening at 10 am.

Of course, everyone is invited to come see us at our booth for a friendly chat and a demo of our devices. See you at the CEBIT!
