How robust is Jinke?
I am interested in an eink too and since Sony is delayed and delayed, and Iliad is way too expensive and slightly too big for my needs, I am taking a close look at Jinke. The one big question I have is how reliable is it?
I had 2 Nokias die the stripe screen of death on me in 3 months of (heavy) use, and while the first one I had it replaced in store the next day, the second time they did not have them available temporarily close to me and I did not want to drive to a Queens store to get it replaced since I could use the Ebookwise and my sister in law Nokia too, so CompUSA shipped one in a week or so (I have the 2 yr replacement plan + warranty).
The one big advantage of SonyReader is that like CompUSA, I have a Sony store and 3 Borders stores within 20 minutes of my house leaving the ones in NYC aside.
I do not mind ordering stuff from anywhere in the world (leaving aside books/toys that I order routinely from anywhere, the 2 1 Gb cards I have for the Nokias came from HongKong and Singapore), but I hesitate to order a Jinke because I do not know how reliable is under heavy use (this one would get used daily by my wife who finds the Nokia too small and bright, but likes the eink size/display).
