Hanvon N516 available for preorder

One of MobileRead's members just received an email from EnWo, the first Hanvon distributor. EnWo is currently taking preorders for a June shipping date. For the first 150 who sign up the price will be 225€ (~$313). I suspect that the offer is only open to residents of Germany.

If you want to sign up, click here.

Thanks, juergen_grendel, for letting us know.

P.S. One member has had experience with the N510, and he was underwhelmed.

Danke schön, juergen_grendel, for letting us know.
I hope you are aware that this reader just supports pdf and txt formats? For a 5" reader the price is a bit steep, too. The regular price will be 250€, which is frankly too much.

Yes, I did know. I think the intro price is too high.

Ok, nearly all... But that should be more than PDF and TXT!

Well, I've got FBReader running on my n516. But it's not compatible with stock firmware.

Isn't the 510 being replaced with the 516?

I dunno about the version numbers, but make sure if you order it, that you are getting the one with the touchscreen stylus input!

As you can see in my video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dcN28YIxVZc

That one is cooler than the one without the touchscreen input!

Hanvon also said that they are working on a version with built-in WiFi connectivity!

None of N510 nor N516 seem to be the touchscreen version, so I wouldn't recommend it..
