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

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 ?
