Another question, does the 5" 360 have the same functions as this 301+?

I agree the lack of more distinct display if bullet items will take some getting used to...I have another teeny thing I see that maybe someday, eventually, sometime, in some near or far future time could be considered worthy of firmware revision...being able to turn off the underline of hyperlinks, instead just let the user set the behavior and color of links in a document.

Just a thought as while I am sure it is livable, the underlined links like that are, well, kinda fugly... BTW, I get it that these things are often not trivial in the reader world...having tried to edit and clean up a few books over the past few years, I see how poorly formed books are in their native formats. So, I can see it being one of those coding choices where real value/benefit vs. finite developer resources. Not a but deal I think once I viewed a few of these test images.

Even more: it can change the orientation using the accelerometer. However, it has less buttons so some games and apps made for 301 need to be modified...
I think removing a "back" button was a mistake, both in PB360 and Sony PRS-600. It makes some things much more tedious than they should be.

I have a question that igorsk mentioned was being looked at, and that is the button on the 360 used in a video demo side by side a PRS-505 had a very audible click sound. I am hoping that has been addressed at this point in time? It really would be a big detractor for me.

I'm pretty sure Pocketbook likely has heard this from a lot of folks so...??

Breck,

I'll try to find out. So far I was unaware of that clicking. When I was playing with one back this summer, there were no clicks at all...

Thanks...no hurry, but that is some difference huh? I never noticed it in any video until that one vid. igorsk did pass along that there was an effort underway to change the type of button used. I am guessing to something like a softclick/membrane sorta button.

Thanks for taking the time...btw, it's not really a deal breaker for me...hehehehe...

2) Dictionaries lookups - yes
3) Accessories - leather cover, 1 Gb SD card, wall charger
4) PRC format is supported and displayed all right.
can you confirm this? i thought all i get is the 360 and a usb cable.
Would be great to get that nifty leather sleeve. looks nice.
Can you tell me what the shipping costs to austria would be?
i saw on the ukranian site it costs 299 y.e...what currency is that? can i order it from there and have it shipped to austria? that would be quicker i guess.

You can order Pocketbook in Germany if you live in the European Union.

I'm interested! How much will it cost if I order it from Germany? Or, is it being sold in a regular store already and can I see it in person/pick it up myself?

I'll most likely be in Germany for a motorcycle fair next weekend... I'd be more than willing to let my boyfriend fend for himself for a little bit, while I go look at Pocketbooks
