I think, Yar-Pocketbooker has already answered this question in post 23 of this thread:

My good friend Google took me to that page when I searched for "Pocketbook touch" ;-)

I was listing this cover as one of three things that the reader is MISSING from "all the dream features for ereaders".

ah, in my excitement I missed the "Except perhaps for": yes, I agree that would make it an absolute winner.
Still looking good, though

Thanks pkbo; you're a fount of knowledge!

The translation said that it was based on the Pro firmwares. I wonder if the executables for the Pro devices will still work on the Touch? Or maybe they are moving completely to Qt instead of Inkview?

Some owners (or testers not sure) tried coolreader on it and it worked fine. The only problem I did not manage to complete touch support in the coolreader it will be not that convenient to use compared with applications specifically adapted for the model. If they will move completely to Qt libinkview will still remain. Their QT port uses it as low level layer to access screen and buttons.
