Harry,

Using the last firmware update as a "base", I'm estimating the next firmware release around early to mid September. Or at least that's when they'll probably announce it.

Derek
In my opinion, judiging by what they fixed in the last update (what, really? things they say they fixed aren't fixed) , it'll take at least two years before they implement folders properly.

Just have to wait for it, then. Moaning won't make it appear any faster .

Why not? If people do not buy a Gen3 because of the moaning than they will have a reason to work faster. If nobody complains then why should the bother to work faster?

I don't think they speak English anyway, so perhaps there's a French forum somewhere where they get their input... or maybe they just look at sales.

How would they notice someone didn't buy?

Tommy,

Work is under way to port OpenInkpot to the Cybook, ExPlay, Astak and Netronix. That is open source. So why not contribute?

Derek

P.S. For what it's worth, the SBC board in the EB-100 is nearly (okay, my *newer* EB-100 has a version 1.3 designation on the connector between the SBC and the display) identical to that of the original version Cybook Gen3. You can see the photos I took of the EB-100 here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...t=21808&page=8

Well, this is kind of not related to the question of how to influence companies but yes I have thought about getting involved with OpenInkpot and might do that when the current work deadlines have passed.

I'm tempted to do that for the 'soft touch' navigation button alone. The clicking gets annoying somethings, like when I'm reading in the 'dark' with my booklight trying not to wake up Hubby. I don't really need the extra room on the Cybook itself, all 205 books I have now only take 105MB on my SD card, so I would feel that I had to give up the card if I had more room. Or does this mean that the firmware will take more room later on and we will need the space for that??

Does anyone with a "new" version want to trade for my "old" one?

It's about central button, not a page turning one.

DrS

edit - even page turning button is not quite silent - just not that loud

I can "feel" the button click on mine, but certainly not hear it.

On my Cybook the central navigation button gives a very loud click. Loud enough to wake up my husband
