Pocketbook 301 connectivity

Hey, I've got a couple of questions, would be great if someone could answer them, please:

1. WiFi - is it there or not? http://www.pocketbookreader.com site doesn't even mention it, while ERMatrix surely does - so what's the deal?
2. If it has WiFi - how does it work - I mean how can I use it? Can I download books from a shared folder on my computer? Can I browse internet with it? I've seen info about RSS channels - can I open those links and read it?

So, basically what's the difference between PB 301 and 360? Apart from the screen size and G-sensor, or whatever it's called?

PB360 does not have headphone jack and audio playing capability.
PB360 has detachable lid and IMHO better placed page turning buttons.

Firmware is very very similar.

Thanks kacir, how about listening to audiobooks - I can imagine I can do that, but will it allow me to resume listening after I've paused it in the middle of a file and turned the reader off?

I would go for Onyx Boox, if only I could browse internet with it normally, was a little bit cheaper and could read .tiff and .djvu files.

I'm sorry I'm jumping from one thing to another, but it's a hard decision to make, as it will cost me a whooping 1/3 of my monthly salary, so you can imagine I want to make sure it will be THE ONE.

Concerning RSS-feeds - you can download it from your RSS-reader through USB, and then read.
My collegues download news in the morning and read it in the underground.

I download my morning papers via RSS, too.
