I voted no... I would even say there should be less fora. Bundle alls those devices that aren't amongst the highly popular ones in one forum. So, you'd have a "Various E-Book Devices" forum (like you have the "Legacy E-Book Devices")

thank you.

Which is exactly why I started this poll.

I wanted to see if there was a true desire, or just a few people asking.

As you can see, it seems to be pretty much the former.

We also know Alex has it on his "too do" list, so......

I think we can lay the matter to rest, and allow Alex to develop it in his own good time.

I'd be content with an "other devices" forum (although I do think there's enough interest & activity to support a Jetbook forum), and perhaps we should have one of those, considering the number of new e-ink readers being planned or released.

When the Coolerbook comes out in a few weeks, people will want to discuss it, and I don't think "News & Commentary" is the best place for those discussions. As other new readers are developed, I don't know that there's enough demand for each of them to warrant a forum, but it'd be nice to have a place for them. (Maybe the Readius forum could be converted to "Not Yet Released Ebook Readers?")

I vote yes. While I understand that for the mod this will take some time to create and will need someone to monitor, I have seen some very enthusiastic people here who could help. I myself would not be opposed to helping out if a newbie can offer his limited knowledge

I purchased a Sony (for me) and a Jetbook (for my wife) for Christmas. Well I left my Sony on an international flight last week. I'm now faced with the dilemma of what to buy. I'm leaning toward the Jetbook as my wife is very pleased with it.

If your wife has Black color jetBook you can purchase white from newegg.com with $100 discount for $199.99 (they sell Black jetBook for $299.99).
As for me I have Black jetBook and my wife has the white one .

Not sure why it doesn't have a forum-does it not count as an ebook because it doesn't use e-ink?
