PocketBook Ultra 650

I have just created a page in our wiki for the PocketBook Ultra. Looks like a state of the art 6" device with an E Ink Carta screen and a built-in camera you can use for pictures or to create a book using the built-in OCR software. An interesting variation on an eBook Reader.

In theory, yes.

Unfortunately, PocketBook currently has some problems with both software and hardware.

These problem are (besides the fact that the name 650 has already been taken for the Sony Reader PRS-650 so anyone who refers to it cannot refer to it as a 650 and must think of something else)?

Yes, because we're all too stupid to tell the difference between a device released in 2011 and one from a different company which was released in 2014.

And I don't believe you can copyright a number anyway. I think I will go copyright 1.

There are problems with the display and the software. At least the software problems seem to be sorted out one by one with the new beta firmwares PocketBook is providing. For the display problems, check this post in German: http://allesebook.de/e-book-reader/p...rgleich-50943/

Any other links? The one in the Wiki appears to be the manufacturer (I don't see any pricing/purchasing options)?

I emailed the company and asked about purchasing it in the US, and was told I would have to buy it through their French website.

http://boutique.pocketbook.fr/index.php?id_lang=3

I believe the price works out to around $200 before shipping.

You can always check Amazon (marketplace) after a bit. I bought my Pocketbook 623 that way, and didn't have to deal with making out-of-country purchases.
