Bebook 2 release info

I have just recieved a reply from Endless Ideas sales team about Bebook 2 release details

Quote:
Dear Darren,

First of all, thank you for your interest in the BeBook!

Our BeBook Two model will not be launched any time soon. We are currently changing the specs for a better reading experience and we are not expecting to launch it within this year. Our engineers are hard working on a perfect model, but it, unfortunately, takes more time than expected.

We apologize for the massive delay!

When it will be launched, it will be available at many shops in the UK. We will list it on our website.

And, the unit will be completely different. We are now working on the flaking cases and a new website with a clean forum to help our customers better.

If you are able to wait, the BeBook Two will be a great device..

Best regards,
BeBook Sales Team
I have looked at Sony PRS 600 & 300 again and would like to know if anyone has one of these and a Bebook mini to compare and post info

Thx

Darren

You can look at the comparison chart on our wiki page. The mini is the same as a Hanlin V5.

I think I'll have to move on to greener pastures, it seems. I really want a touch screen device, and if I read that mail correctly, it looks like it'll take at least half a year before they'll release.

Not a smart move, I'd say.

I do love my mini though.

Bad news, I may have a project for 1,000 devices in Dec. I may go with ONYX boox 60 instead.

Yes, I'm contemplating that one as well, instead of the BeBook 2.

have you guys had a look at upcoming Pocketbook 302?
seems as though it has similar-to-better specs and backed by a respected Eastern European company.

I have read the specs of the 300, 600 and the V5, I have also seen the 300 & 600. What I was more interested in was a direct comparision from someone who has used/owned these, as opposed to speculation. so screen comparison, ease of use, sturdyness, viewing ability in RTF PDF etc, etc

Just checked out info on the pocketbook, my first response is very good. now im interested in an actual comparison between the Sony 300, 600 Hanlin V5/Bebook mini and pocketbook 301/302/360. I know its a tall order, probably lots would like this.

many thanks keng. Matrix is good for comparing specs, I was also interested in a comparision based on a member who owns or has tested each unit, not just a list of features

Agree, Let's set up the standard items what the most users would like to compare. Then people can more specific on testing.
