This is exciting I'm almost definitely buying my next reader from Pocketbook, just not sure yet if I should wait for the 302.

Also, to weigh in on the accessories issue, I think it's a brilliant idea to offer it without frills in order to hit this accessible price point.

I downloaded the user manual from the site, here is what it says is in the box.

WHAT’S IN THE BOX
• POCKETBOOK 360
• Protective cover
• Wrist lash
• USB-cable
• Wall charger
• User Manual
• Warranty sheet

Well I think it only comes with the protective shell cover and USB cable? No charger.

In this case I can tell you: "Don't beleive your eyes"... Sorry, but I just did not have time to edit the User Manual, to delete the bullets that won't be there anyway. I just don't have wrist lashes and wall chargers - this will be next lot, and it will cost a couple of bucks more.
I'm not suggesting this compromise to the 'broad public', just to the MR members, hoping that they are more into the devices than the packaging and the frills that come with them....Sorry for any inconveniences...

PB 302 will be availible 'after Christmas' - this is the most recent inside info that I got from guys in Kiev. This may mean January, during the CES (hopefully), or... in the worst case scenario, this can be Feb ir Mar even.... I know for sure that the firmware is ready and sitting on the shelf waiting to be installed on the device, but the point is that devices are not ready yet...

So, if you are not in a hurry, you can wait for 302, but... read above...

I'm guessing that the 360 is chargeable via the USB cable (I'm not very up to date on how other readers do it)?

Does this mean the $239 price point will not last?

No, it will last, there will be several types of specifications:
-no thrills at all - "standard" (book, cover, USB- cable);
- some accessories - "comfort" (above plus wrist lash and a wall charger)
- all possible accessories and their brother - "elite" (all above plus memory card plus leather pouch)

The standard version will stay at $239.99, at least this is the plan.

Correct, you just hook it up to your computer and voila.

From looking at the posted pictures I drew the impression that the charger, wrist leash, etc. were standard so someone else may make the same mistake. And will those accessories be available seperately later? I really want a user-replaceable battery so I will not be ordering a 360, but I am still quite curious.

i'll do such a post tomorrow

i read in a review of the 360 that the large buttons were not as responsive and stable due to it's construction.
Are other users experiencing the same and is there going to be a fix in the future?
