Not from E-Ink (the company), but a similar bi-stable reflective display from another manufacturer.

The second Monday of the week, as is usual for any Bookeen product .

Seriously, if they say "November", the question to ask is "which year?". Bookeen are notoriously hopeless at hitting release dates.

8" Onyx Boox is supposed to have 512 MB, that is 4 x Cybook's 128 MB, could pose a big difference for pdf handling, although a lot of it will be consumed by its 1600x1200 resolution i.e. about 2.5 x more pixels then Cybook's 1024x768.

AFAIK, the planning was November/Christmas 2013, not 2014.

Developing a new e-reader wouldn't need to take 2-4 years, not even if it's a "weird" 8 inch model. If you want to be quick, then just design a nice case, get the guts of the thing into it (they're all commodity products now), and adapt Android for it. I think that, when starting from scratch, it could be done in under a year at most.

Yes, as the posts MADE last November (eg my post #19 above) state, Bookeen don't have a great track record when it comes to meeting planned release dates .
