Ebook readers at IFA Berlin, 4-9 September

The IFA is a consumer electronics trade show held in Berlin every year. Several exhibitors will be bringing ebook readers this year.

Sony will be there (Hall 4.2/Booth 101). Currently only the PRS-505 is listed, so they might not be bringing the recently announced PRS-300 or PRS-600. I'm following up on this and will post new information as I get it.

There will also be a new Netronix distributor. It's a Netherlands based company by the name of Lubix. Based on the product description, they don't appear to have added to default firmware.

And we've been told that PocketBook, the Ukraine based ebook developer, will be attending. They do not appear to be listed as an exhibitor, so I can't guarantee the booth number (Hall 14/Booth 107).

I have 2 reasons to be interested in Pocketbook. The first is that hey developed their own firmware, including a better gui. The other reason is that Andrey, the sales manager, has said that they will be bringing all of their readers, the PocketBook 301, 302, and the 360 (their new 5" reader). Hopefully MR will be able to send someone to take a look at it.

I'm testing the 360 right now and already have an appointment with Pocketbook at September, 9th, so rest assured.

The GUI is quite good and elaborate, best I've seen so far on any device.

K-Thom, that's great news. as i already said i'm really looking forward to hearing your review of the Pocketbook which looks like a brilliant device, and i'll be very interested to hear what information Andrey (and any others you can talk to) can give you at IFA as well.

Information is correct. They will be at Hall 14.1/Booth 107 under the name of Western Graphics.

Remember, Sony has a big Reader announcement next week, so maybe they will bring their hoped for wireless Reader along:

So, is anyone going?

I ask becuase Sony is having a press conference in its booth on 2 September (before the fair). It would be good if someone could ask them about the Daily Edition.
