World Science Fiction Convention - Denver 6-10 August
This post is going to several sub-forums, apologies for any inconvenience. Is there somewhere I could have posted it once and yet ensure that all hardware enthusiasts see it? It does not seem to be possible to post to the root Forum >E-Book Devices
I have offered to chair a session on ebook hardware issues at the World Science Fiction Convention in Denver 6-10 August.
It now seems that there will be quite a lot of ebook related stuff but at my session, if it comes off, I should like there to be examples of as many different readers as possible available for the audience to see.
I own, and shall be bringing, a Kolin reader, an REB1100, an (eBookwise) REB1150, an REB1200, a Bookeen Cybook3, and an iRex iLiad.
I really do think there should be a Sony (500 or 505 - preferably both) and a Kindle. Is anyone from this Forum going to Denver who has one of these that they are willing to bring to my session, please?
Does anyone likewise have anything else they would be willing to bring (e.g. an original Rocket eBook, a Franklin, or one of the several very new readers [HanLin V2 or V3, STAReBOOK STK-101, Polymer Vision "Readius", Astak Mentor EB-300, or whatever] currently being introduced)?
Thanks for any help - James

I will be at that session but will only have my Cybook Gen3 and Nokia N810 with me. But somebody has to bring a Kindle so I can look at it. I was thinking about trying to buy one when I am there and either have it delivered to a hotel or to a friend but I want to see it in person first.

I have a 500 (broken) and a 505 (new), and will be at Denvention as well. As we get closer, let me know if you need me and my hardware for a panel.

I would have *loved* to participate in this event. Unfortunately, it's scheduled against my semi-annual technical conference to be held in San Jose, California. If you get an opportunity to plan something like this with a bit more lead time, let me know.
