And here's a link to the English version: http://www.imcosys.com/ebook-reader.html.

I'm interested. I like the fact that the page turn buttons are on both edges and that I won't have to convert books to epub format, but its definitely going to come down to the quality of the frontlight.

Thanks. Either the guy who's using it is utterly useless or the device is really slow and the screen doesn't look that great but that could be down to the lighting in the video.

I'm still quite interested and have emailed the company to ask them if they had any plans to release it in the UK.

I read somewhere that it is 214gr.

[edit]I have just found the link: http://allesebook.de/e-book-reader/i...estellt-35186/ - It says that the weight was previously reported as being 250gr., but the correct weight is 214gr.[/edit]

I have a feeling it's just really slow. I wonder if it could even handle the Overdrive Android app.

It didn't look slow at all to me, just that the presenter didn't have much idea of how to use it.

It did look slow to me opening books and reacting to touch so Have to say that my PW2 really whizzes along.

I'll see what reply I get from the company - if they do decide to sell them in the UK then I'll definitely check it out.

Will do I emailed them yesterday, so no idea how long they will take to get back to me. If they don't bother to reply, or take a month or something then it will put me off buying their stuff.

Interesting. I wonder if it will have a norefresh mode mode for smooth scrolling.

A bit more information here: http://www.lesen.net/ereader/imcosys...st-video-8415/
(german)

From what I gather from the video/article, it seems to have Micro USB, uses Android 2.3, they (lesen.net) think it's not really ready for public yet.

The main question remaining (for me) would be the chip used. If the chip is good enough, I'm sure someone WILL make a backport of current Android for it.

[edit]Off-Topic: 300th post! I don't want to know how much would remain if irrelevant/angry ranting would be subtracted from the count :-)

that's not great. I know it's an e-reader and not a tablet but still, 2.3 is just a tad too old I think

Edit: and yes if it can handle a more recent Android build, then I'm sure we'll be able to flash that but I would suspect that they use 2.3 because that's all the thing can cope with.

Gah
