PocketBook US site opened... :)

Just found a site for the US seller of PocketBook devices here:

http://www.PocketBookReader.com

No 360's or 302's in stock yet but soon they said. They do have the 301 model in stock.

We'll see but it is a start...price is going to be a very important thing...then again if their devices work great an extra bit might not matter, then again I like a bargain.

The 302 looks, interesting. The screen is super shiny though.

Yeah, all of the passive (finger type) touch displays all have a shiny display. I guess it has something to do with the requirements of the given technology. The PRS-600 is almost a mirror when the light hits it in just the right fashion.

I have a Nokia N800 Internet Tablet which also has a very glossy display and uses, what I assume is the same type of touch interface...but I can put a matte finish protector over it and actually improve the touch response and eliminate those horrid reflections. This is given that the eink-type displays do not actively emitt light, adding a matte finish will likely really affect the display...

Dang...I just checked and my local Staples is out of stock on the PRS600 so it's a 40mi round trip to see one up close. Must be patient...much prefer feature set on Pocketbook 302 or iRex DR800...must be patient...give it time...hehehehe...

Yeah. I saw the PRS-600 up close, and it's really not that bad. The 302 probably isn't that bad in regular light either.

thanks for the info on the PRS-600...I suspect the 302 will be the same as well. Time and reviewers will tell.

One thing about glossy on a reader vs. glossy on a laptop is you can adjust a reader to compensate for the lighting more consistently and easier than a laptop or non-convertible netbook.
