It looks like the Ink Pad 840 has the same E-ink screen used in the Colour Lux, but without the colour filters in place. That puts the resolution at 1600x1200; very nice! They've also put in a faster processor (1Gz) and twice the RAM (512MB) as the Colour Lux. Since there were a lot of complaints about the performance of the Colour Lux, it looks like they've tried to address that in this new model. It remains to be seen if it's fast enough.

Still, these new models look very interesting!

Here's the link to the discussion in the German subforum.

http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=239748

Posts 3, 4 and 5 contain some very useful links. Although it's in German I think at least the Pocketbook press release in post 5 is understandable in regard to the specifications of this device. Yes, very interesting!

Nice, though I don't know about the release date. I tried checking a couple of their websites http://www.pocketbook-int.com/welcome-pocketbook and none of them mention the Inkpad yet.

Yea, I may have to revise that (or you can) when a better date is determined. PocketBook seems silent on this issue.

follow my link to The digital reader
then follow the link to The-ebook.org
They [the PocketBook] say there that it will be released in "– в начале июля." "- in early July." [as translated from Russian by translate.google.com]
If you go to the http://www.chip.pl/news/sprzet/table...-nowe-czytniki you will learn that in Poland
"Od sierpnia w ofercie firmy PocketBook pojawi się też ośmiocalowy czytnik PocketBook InkPad, wyposażony w nowy rozmiar wyświetlacza E Ink."
"Since August the company's offer PocketBook will also ośmiocalowy reader PocketBook inkpad , equipped with the new E Ink display size." [as translated from Polish by translate.google.com]

If you follow the link from post no. 3 from this thread, you will find discussion of German forum, and there in post no. 3 again you will find link to the http://www.lesen.net/ereader/pocketb...dschirm-12193/
that claims: [Update 16:00 clock : Meanwhile, there is also a German press release. Accordingly, the PocketBook InkPad will be available in June and cost 189 €. ] [as translated from German by translate.google.com]


If you want to know why we do not know when [or even if] this model will be available in USA officially, please read the thread: Amazon is destroying e-reader innovation

"ośmiocalowy" means "eight inch" in the translation above.

That's not a bad translation overall considering that, because of its grammatical redundancy, word order is not that important in Polish, whereas it is in English.

But I digress...

Here an article in Polish :P
http://swiatczytnikow.pl/nowe-czytni...-cover-reader/

Inkpad firmware lacks some important functions like "home" button - you'd have to exit the book to get to home screen

From the pictures in the article it does look like they removed the Home and Menu buttons from the device (they were there on the Colour Lux). Maybe they were getting accidentally pressed in that position. It would have been nice if they just moved them to the bottom of the bezel.

If I understand this correctly, the InkPad hits the market on the 17th of this month.

Great, thanks. I have bought a Onyx T68, and quite like it, but would really prefer an 8 inch screen.

I've bought the Onyx, too, but only because the display on my Icarus 8 was slowly dying and I needed a good place-holder; I will get the InkPad as soon as it is available.

After reading on an 8 inch screen for a year now I just can't go back to a 6 inch device; they're just too small.
