Question cybook repackaged?

Is this:

the Gen3 with another label?

If so, should I install their firmware on my cybook?

Both the Cybook and the Foxit Eslick use hardware supplied by netronix. That is why they look the same. The firmware is different for each device and is not interchangeable.

And there is one BIG problem with the Foxit:

eBook Formats: PDF, TXT, Any printable document(after converted to PDF using included software)

It only reads PDF or TXT. So you will not have the nice things that come with a dedicated eBook format:

Selectable Font Types
Sizeable Font Types
Good reflowing
