Pixelar E-Reader reviewed by SlashGear

The guys over at SlashGear have done an excellent hands-on review of the Pixelar E-Reader. Their verdict:

Quote:
We like the Pixelar E-Reader, especially as we use both PCs and Macs(the latter unsupported by the Sony eBook), but we’re not sure it offers enough to sway us from the Sony brand. It seems to be a popular design, though: we’ve seen the same OEM hardware, under different names, in various countries, all priced roughly the same. If Pixelar can bring the price down to under £200 they’ll have a far better chance of convincing buyers; there’s nothing fundamentally wrong with the E-Reader experience.
Looks like another Jinke V3 rebrand for the UK.

I'm pretty sure the little screws are extra battery cover screws in case you lose one trying to change the battery.

Wink Ah, see the light

Yup, another V3 rebranded device.

And have a look at this light on the pixelar page, bearing the name "HanLin".

Hadn't come across this special type before. Nice.

A nice review, though I'm not sure that I agree that "one company selling the same hardware to a bunch of different vendors (who put their own apps on it)" is the same as that hardware being "popular."

According to robertb in that very long Astak thread, Jinke sells a lot to Russia.

It's obviously more re-branded hardware, but that's fine. If this is the path required to spread ebook readers, I'm all for it.

@ NatCh and DaleDe:

Well, well. Got another market-structure over here. Sony startet direct mainstreet selling of the PRS 505 here in Germany today.

Along with Cybook and iRex and imported Sonys, most of the readers in use on this side of the pond surely are rebranded Jinkes. That's popular enough ...

By the way: What's this "Kindle" thingy everyone keeps talking about? No use over here, you see, folks ?
