That's great news!

Robert, I hope that when they are available you or one of your colleagues will post a YouTube video about it.

A lot of it will depend on the power the MicroUSB unit has supplied. Lower power will not trigger the connection to a PC.

Wishing to place order for one to be shipped across the other pond to Australia. The web page does not permit non US/Canada addresses. Any other options for me?

You have to go to astak.com and click on international orders on the bottom left.
But you also might want to check out this post: Australia and New Zealand: New ebook reader
It's basically the same device as the 6" EZ Reader but with different firmware. And with local customer service. Here is a review of the ECO Reader

Thanks for that. Just place my order for the 5" unit. I am aware of the 6" unit, but also aware that the unit is 'older technology'. Also it is still cheaper to purchase it from US. Might regret it should the unit needs repair, but will cross my fingers.

Dear Mr. Griffonwing,

Thank you for your interest in Saunders products, in particular our RhinoSkin line. RhinoSkin cases are very device specific. Unfortunately at this time we do not have one available for your particular device nor do we have plans for such at this time. I forwarded your request to our Product Development department. Should a case for the EZreader become available you will be notified by email. Again, thank you for your inquiry.

Sincerely,
MaryLou Jameson

I pasted contact info as well, in case anyone else wishes to email or call them. I figure, if they get inundated with calls and emails for them, they might wake up.

I suspect they would have been more interested if you had told them that such a case would fit several products, not just one.

I went to the Astak website and looked at what it had to say about the Pocket Pro. It listed what comes in the package, and it did not mention a USB cable to link the unit with one's computer to download the books!

Am I missing something?

I did mentioned that the EZ Reader and Pocket Pro were the same as the HanlinV3 and V5, although I neglected to mention all of the other clones.

Perhaps if they get enough requests, they would see it as a viable option.

I have twenty reviewers and five retailers that want eval samples... and we are all waiting. I got offered $300 for a Pocket PRO today from a reviewer who wants to buy it and get out the first story... and I do not have any to sell.

Do like I do... post crazy notes to Griffonwing.
but I want it NOW! ...btw, good to see you are seeing a lot of interest

Please go to www.astak.com to place your order (pre-order).

The reason we use two websites is that the www.astak.com takes PayPal and the other wesbite only takes credit cards. PayPal is much easier for you and much safer for Astak on International shipping and transactions!

Don't forget to choose your color? We have six to choose from!!

Thank you, mate!!!

Dear Griffonwing:

Oh God, please, NO!! You pouting for two weeks means a dark cloud cast on a very FUN time. Last minute changes are being made by the factory. They are planning to have a choice where you can set the scrool wheel to advance pages OR adjust the music volume, for example!!

Try painting yourself in slate blue and attending a Razorback's football game!!

I will go to the Astak website and check on this omission. Which website was it: www.theEZreader.com or www.astak.com??

Do NOT worry. The USB cable does come with the unit!!
