Pocketbook 360

Hi! I hope this is in the right place...

Does anyone have their hands on a Pocketbook 360 and wants to give some opinions? I know its only been out a little while but fingers crossed

I really love the Opus but I don't think I can live without a sleep mode (like the Sony models) so I am wondering if the 360 has this function? I think I read that it does but would love some confirmation.

Thanks in advance!

Pocketbook 360 is not made my Bookeen, but it doesn't have its own forum at this point. Possibly the what should I buy section?

So far I believe only one person on this forum has one I think? He posted info on it in the german section. Alas I can't tell you what he said as I don't read german.

Hi!
Pocketbook has a sleep-mode, but it's not so economical as a Sony’s one. It is therefore to recommend to activate an automatically „switch off „ function or just turn off the device at night manuelle. In this case the battery’s charge is enough for a long time. For example, I charged my PocketBook 360° 10 days ago (I’m at the moment on holidays and charged it befor I flied away) and now it has still 80% battery’s charge. I read every day about 4-5 hours a day and at night I switch off the device.
