Wizpac txtr demo at CeBIT

We covered the txtr about a month back. Thanks to an inquisitive MobileRead member, we now know that it will be demoed next week at the CeBIT in Hannover.

We don't know if MobileRead will be able to send someone, so I'm asking anyone who can go to stop by the Wizpac booth next week and have a look at the txtr. We'd like to hear your opinion. We'd love photos.

P.S. Tell them I sent you.


Update: Our friends over at Wizpac have updated their blog. The txtr demo at CeBIT will be on the 3rd & 4th of March. Wizpac will also demo the txtr at the Leipzig Book Fair on the 12th and 13th of March.

First, it's in Hannover, not Munich...

And second, I'll make sure my batteries of my photo camera (which can also make decent videos) are full and its SD card empty.

Now I only need to find out where they'll be standing...

Thanks. I don't know how I got that wrong.

Well well well, now they have a show going just round the corner (Leipzig ist not even two hours from here)!
I can't say for suer, but I might manage to go there on the 13th of March, it sepens whether I can swap with a collegue because I would have to work in the mornings and I would prefer having the whole day to go there and back and still get some quality time in with WizPac and their txtr.

I'll try to arrange that!

I've got a pretty decent camera with HD Video...depending on how crowded everything gets I might be able to bring some pics and vids home with me.

Shame I didn't know about this sooner. Plane tickets from Oslo are now around $1000 which I can't afford.

Please, please, please get as much detail as you can I'm really intrigued by this product and how it potentially integrates with their backend service.

i'm jealous of both of you ! please take as many photos and videos as you can, and ask plenty of questions !! the txtr looks really great to me and i want to know as much as possible.

ask when it will be released in france, and at what price.

For anyone interested they now have an option when you signup for their newsletter to be put in a queue for priority ordering. It's not an order, but if you sign up, when you actually order you will be bumped to the top of the queue.

I'll be there on the 5th which is obviously too late to take a peek at the reader... BTW: What about a Mobileread.com meet-up at the fair? Is anybody else planning to visit the CeBIT?

This is the info I just got by mail:

Hello Thomas,

yes, we will be at the CeBIT, but unfortunately we won't have a fixed location.
We will have several meetings there and if you keep your eyes open I'm sure you will see us somewhere there with the prototype ready for testing.
Sorry that I can't give you more information than that.

Kind regards
Looks like we have to search for them on the fair ground
