Ouch. I would have expected the 4.3" screen to be a more robust than the 6" screens.

I'm now more convinced that I shouldn't buy another eInk screen device with a glass substrate.
I don't use my Pocketbook 360 much anymore, mostly because my K4 NT is almost as pocketable and has a decent cover. (Also my pb360 would never go long without corrupting my SD card and can not suspend instead of shut down). But there is still nothing like the snap on lid to protect the pb360 screen.

I'm very very tempted bythis device, but I'll be strong and wait to see if Amazon will follow the mini-trend this year. A paperwhite-mini would be nice.
It would have to have page turn keys for me to have any interest in one.

Decent color-eink still seems a long way off.

The Pyrus Mini has page turn keys on its right hand edge, when viewed from the front. They work perfectly. As long as you're holding the reader in your left hand

360 degree rotation, screen can be shown any way up, so the keys can be at the top, bottom, left or right depending on your choice.

Regarding the battery life...

Mine has been in sleep mode for between 2-3 weeks so I thought I would check the battery and it was completely full, all bars. he only time my battery completely drained over night was when I added a bunch of very large books and it never went in the sleep mode.

But overall I like this little e-reader. Very nice size for the pocket.

I got mine today. The screen is pretty good and the page turns are fast as well. I couldn't install the reader suite but got the books I wanted on there anyway. I'll have to look into why the installation wasn't cooperating. I have a Mac,BTW.

I don't think the reader suite worked for anyone

Hi and congrats on getting the Pyrus Mini. I love mine!
As MikeB1972 said, no one seems to have gotten the TrekStor reader suite to install.
I gave up even looking for a working version, after almost bricking my Mini installing the "corrupt" one.
I use Calibre and don't need the TrekStor suite anyway.

I'm going back to take another look at it in the store tomorrow. This little reader has been seriously tempting me lately because the wasted opportunities where I could sneak in a few minutes of reading here and there just seem to pile up.

How do you get the firmware updates though, without the reader suite? I have searched their website but couldn't find any alternative download links.

That is why I tried to load the Reader Suite as well is for the firmware updates. But when they are available you can manually download them. if you go to their website, and select "Service & Support" you will see a list of the e-readers. They have a firmware update for the Pyrus (not our mini)as you can see and you can download it. So when a firmware update is available for the mini they will add it to the list of devices and offer the update there. At least that is what i was told.

I also enjoy mine a lot.

That's great to know, thanks. I would prefer not to have to download yet another program anyway. Hope I'll be able to get the Pyrus Mini soon!

I got mine today! I went to a store but was not planning on getting anything but then I saw that for just this week the Pyrus Mini is on sale for just 37 Euros. So I happily grabbed one of the last blue ones and am now so glad I did. The size is so cute but the screen is not too small to comfortably read on as I had feared. The contrast really is excellent and it is so lightweight and fits nicely into my palm. It will be perfectly to read on while waiting at the bus stop. Usually I don't bother to unpack my Kindle for those 5 minutes.
