Replacement for the PB302?

I have had and still use a PB302 since it first came out. It is still going strong and I use it every day. Great machine. It is getting old though, and I am guessing the battery is going to give out sooner or later. So I am looking around for a replacement - and since PB has been such a great purchase (although very expensive), I think going with the latest PB model is the first choice.

I still want to stay with eInk (as I use it camping a lot), and I like the 6" size. And I also want a touch screen. I never use online stuff (all books are installed via Calibre), so I do not need Wifi or 3G.

I have tried to find a good PB website, but all I can find are russian or german. Any recommendations for the best PB model?

looks like you are describing the Touch - and the Touch Lux (aka Touch 2) should be coming soon to Europe (have a look at this thread)
However I am not quite sure how you could get it in your part of the world - perhaps you could send a PM to Forkosigan, who is active on MR and the Europe representative for Pocketbook.
