I just tried to get their .stk maker software...but all I could get was the eRead3 software...did anyone actually manage to get that STK book creator software from their website or is it all contained in the eread3.0 package???

I sent an email to the STAReBOOK guys asking for a review device...now waiting for a reply...let's see what it will be...

My guess would be "no reply at all" but I've been wrong before...

I'd prefer PDF myself, or at least plaint text compatibility.

Seems like Sony & others would have wised up about proprietary formats by now.

Wow, you'd think with all of the e-Ink clones coming out, the price would start to drop (esp. for more cheaply made devices coming out of China). I seriously do not think that they'll see a phenominal launch trying to ask for more than a well-known company such as $ony was for essentially the same device. Those image comparisons were too much, I can't belive they did that! Who needs all of that other jazz on an eReader, i mean come on, my paperback/hardback doesn't need to calculate, play MP3's, warm my pants for me (j/k) so why should it's replacement when the initial draw is to simply replace the paper and bulk of the item?

Here's another question, does the e-Ink technology cost so much that all vendors need to charge so much and offer essentially the same sized screens? How much more would it cost to create a screen that is 30% larger? I don't see too much on the IC side, except maybe a few more to "help flip the pixels," but nothing to really inflate the price too much. Perhaps some company will eventually (think near-term future here, or hope) concede to our requests and eventually offer a full PDF-sized device that is in a reasonable/approachable sub-$300 price range. If they do, and the size/battery life/ruggedness/capabilities fit, I think this would blow all the others out of the water (or at least force them to adapt). Think of the paper saved on all of those soon-to-be-dated tech manuals, computer books, and out-dated medical refernce journals! <-- JMHO

Aside from iRex, which has its own e-ink factory (which seems to be serving only iRex's requirements), everybody is buying e-ink from a single source: PVI. As far as I know, they're the only ones currently licensed by E-Ink Inc. to make the stuff.

Part of the high prices on e-ink devices is likely the still limited manufacturing capacity. But I suspect that part of it also stems from the fact that (unless you're iRex) you can only get the stuff from one place.

These companies just don't get it.
People want CHEAPER, not MORE EXPENSIVE.

Not as long as e-Ink has a monopoly, and no other real competition. e-Ink's only real advantage is phenomenal battery battery life, and as soon as folks realize that they really don't need to read twenty books in a row between charges, ... well! In the meantime, wring out every dollar they can!
