Hurray...

Robert's alive and well.

We miss you.

PS Thanks for the update on the Black and White ones, right on schedule. Great forecasting. (my husband's a meterologist)

Why isn't there a front page news item about the Pocket Pro shipping?

Or maybe no one told the moderators.

But that's OK 'cause we got the word.

Dear customer,

Thank you for your interest in the 5” EZ Reader Pocket PRO. Due to an unexpected US customs delay, the colored Pocket PROs (blue, red/magenta, purple, and pink colors only) are now due to arrive at our warehouse on September 8th, 2009. We are sorry for the delay, but unfortunately we have no control over the matter. We will do our best to quickly ship out your order as soon as they arrive. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at support@astak.com. We thank you for your patience in this unexpected event.

Sincerely,

Astak eBook Reader Team.
ARRRRrrrggghhhh! Another week to go!!

When someone gets a Pocket PRO, I would be interested if the ADE supports internal links.

Now Robertb you need to lend some units to independent, serious websites willing to review the Pocket Pro (MobileRead, Teleread, Ebouquin, etc.).

I will be waiting for reviews of all the new devices before buying my new reader. There are already video reviews and first hand impressions of the new Sony reader everywhere (although not yet any full comprehensive review), so you need to hurry!

I don't think it will, Jon. The ADE implementation doesn't on any Jinke device at present.

EDIT: It's now been confirmed that ePub hyperlinks don't work on the Hanlin V5, which is basically the same device as the Pocket Pro.

Still waiting for ereader format support. I have too much invested in that format, which to date has met my needs far better than Sony/epub/etc. Kindle? I am not American, so have to live with Amazon's contempt of all other markets beyond US borders - but that may not be such a bad thing.

When I see an ereader announcement, I will likely jump to the order page. Until then, still in holding pattern - but wish you well Robert !

We have at least twenty reviewers from everywhere from PC World magazine to Chamber Four and the Mobile Gadgeteer all being shipped Pocket PROs today. We also have a TV review on Good Morning San Diego and KTLA Morning Show.
