Hello asdx,

You can see what firmware you already have now in the reader by pressing the "menu/ok" key, then "6 settings", then "4 about"; the firmware version is listed on the second line of data.

The most current Astak firmware (which is kept up to date here) is: V2.02ASTAK.091201

I don't know about hindi TTS.

It is great that you are happy with your new Pocket Pro!

Anybody here has experience of buying the Pocket Pro from Astak.com? How's their process time (fast/slow) to have the item ship out? Do they email the buyer the tracking information once the package is shipped?

I was in the original batch
I got 2 copies of the tracking mail.

It depends on where you are and what shipper gets used (US Snail is cheaper for local area shipments).
UPS and Fedex track every step along the way. If your UPS driver is in an area with good radio coverage, the status is updated within minutes otherwise they transmit their deliveries DIAD log every few hours by phone.

USPS only does Origin (captured from shippers computer?) and Destination Delivery and I had completed my charging before that status was available.

Dear asdx:

Welcome to the ever growing ranks of pleased Pocker PRO owners. I mean that. I know you made a good choice and you will love your device more as time goes on.

I can ask about the factory doing Hindi language but have no idea on whether TTS can me made to work with hindi texts. I realize the growing multitudes of readers in India who read in Hindi. Yours is a very wise and worthwhile question that leaves me without a good answer. Let me, please, try to get a decent answer for you.

I am overjoyed that you are very happy with the Pocket PRO; and I am grateful for your post!!

Dear asdx:

Thank you!! Our legal territory is North and South America. The factory maintains control over India as a sales territory. We are allowed to drop-ship one order at a time but cannot do anything large scale there. I do completely agree with you that India is a hotbed for students... and perfect for the Pocket PRO.

Never prefer an eBook Reader, even a Pocket PRO over girls!! India has enchantingly pretty women!! I do not want your friends to go without pretty girls!!
