A point for that is also that the firmware updates for arabic and hebrew which need a bit extra for different reading direction are suppose to be in taken from the NA version.

The Text-to-Speech stuff is large in size, and you can only have four languages installed at a time. That's probably the biggest limitation to trying to support the whole world with one firmware image.

Definitely, only I thought it didn't come into play.
Every time i updated the firmware, it kept those i installed.
Maybe it just doesn't overwrite user choices, but it seems to me a single TTS file is about the size of a firmware update so even with compression 4 wouldn't fit.

I hadn't thought of that (that the TTS files might come factory installed along with the books). You're probably right. The SWUPDATE.BIN file is about 200MB and probably isn't compressed (since it compresses by a factor of two in the zip file). The root and ebrmain filesystems take up less space than 200MB, so something is going into /mnt/secure. Maybe it's the dictionaries, which might be licensed by PocketBook separately for different geographic regions.

bear in mind, though, that this is mainly for the new models - I suspect many features are similar, but I am not sure. I will find out soon, though, as I also just ordered a PB360 (much easier for the beach than the PB903, and a very sweet price at £99 ), and I am studying for that one: I would suggest you start from this excellent thread by Kacir, and get the themes for PB360 from this thread.

Anyone knows if there is a way to stop the registration nagging ?
Its my feeling that there is no point in registering to 'receive support' when they can't even bother to properly translate and maintain their various web-sites, let alone buying books through their store.

I do not think I had this problem, or if I did it didn't last long and I cannot remember how I solved it, but hopefully you will find a solution here.

I am afraid I do not know how - but they must have changed something, as I am pretty sure I never had a registration icon in the menu - which instead appears here. They also mention firmware update, but that should work regardless of bookland, could you do that (i.e. update the firmware) with your PB?

Sure, updated it a couple of times already.

Edit: Nice to see that they have an English faq up now, I still have the registration icon not the favorites.

Edit 2: Seeing that they bothered to put up an English faq I've decided to give up and register, still I doubt very much I'll be buying anything before they really improve their act.

Having a non stopping registration nag is coarse and blatant abuse of a customer, a customer shouldn't be forced to register just to stop it, we bought the device its not a piece of shareware we need to be reminded we are using for free.

I wholeheartedly agree with this. Leave the icon, but get rid of the nagging after three tries. Some of us don't have WiFi, and can't register even if we wanted to. Making us say "No!' over and over does no good; only bad. At some point, it goes beyond the point of no return.
