Edit: You have to mail them if you want to purchase. They do not seem to have an option to sell abroad. But I guess it will change quickly once they receive the first twenty or so emails from prospective customers ;-)

The above address leads to http://www.pocketbook-int.com/de
There is not a trace of PB622 on their shop page.

It's there under "Touch", the first device in the line if you choose "Produkte".

I think you can't, at least I didn't find it. As I've understood it from the German part of this forum they start selling at March 26th. I assume that Troll ordered directly from Forkosigan.

The GUI looks totally different from that used in the past devices. Is the new one based on Android?

Those videos are under one minute each, some of them 15 seconds.
You can download video, if you write KISS to the youtube address. Like this:
Code:
the address is 
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7wGHv-vWmw 
and you edit the url to 
www.KISSyoutube.com/watch?v=e7wGHv-vWmw
You have to have Java installed.

It looks like March the 26th really is the day when PB622 is put on the market.

Yes, to me it looks like it has all the features user can desire.
Except perhaps for:
  • physical page-turning buttons on side (like Kindle has),
  • plastic lid for screen that would clip to the back (like PB360 and PB360+ has) and
  • sane mechanism for attaching cover, so you could avoid having cover with *UGLY* and highly impractical bands holding the device in. (that no reader to date has, except for Sony PRS-500, and partially Kindle). First prototypes of PocketBook 602 had small magnetic attachment points visible in four corners at the back side of device.


Disclaimer: I am not PocketBook representative, nor do I sell their devices. So the following is pure speculation and it has fair chance of being totally wrong.

When previous PB models were introduced they had significantly lower price in USA. This fact caused LOTS of heated criticism as being unfair to us - Europeans and especially to their "native" market - Ukraine and Russian Federation. Some people felt that non-USA customers were sponsoring PB models sold in USA, so that PB could remain competitive with Amazon. The situation was further aggravated by the fact that USA based resellers are strictly forbidden to sell to Europe and Ukraine and Russia and other regions where PocketBook has distributors [with higher prices]. I myself was complaining when I found out that PocketBook 360 PLUS was selling for *much* lower price in USA than its OLDER model PocketBook 360 was sold for here in EU. (if I remember correctly, it was something like 140USD for new model versus 250Eur for older model here) My complaints were also fuelled by fact that at that time PocketBook 360 PLUS wasn't available here at all. Possibly because they wanted to sell their remaining stock of older models.

So PocketBook might have decided to solve the situation by not selling to USA, instead of lowering prices here ;-)

Please notice, this is pure speculation.

kacir, I've exhausted all my karma, but really do not know how to thank you: I had checked the greenreader site a couple of days ago, and they did not even have the PB30+ for sale.

Can't downlaod the video with a kiss, either, lookslike it takes too long between my giving permission to the program to run and the thing actually running, but I should be able to fix that tomorrow - but just one question: you say that the touch has a cover "a la 360", which came as a total surprise to me as it was not in any of the videos I had seen: is this totally sure? I can't bring myself to buy a third reader for myself, but I think my husband would prefer it to a 9", especially if it has a rigid cover like the 360.
