My V2 has arrived!

Well, my V2 'sample' has arrived.
As soon as I get a digital camera from a friend i'll start posting some photo's and video. First point is that the cover has been changed from white to a rather nice looking glossy grey.
The software itself is still 'from what I see' not yet set to european (i.e. it doesn't have an english interface yet)
I've only had time to convert one document to .wol, as it's not able to read .txt files yet
As for pdf's there is a zoom facility and a rotate facility, which is pretty good.
The mp3 player isn't yet active.
When i've had more of a play around with it i'll post more info.

I've got to point out that this is pre-production software, and It looks like it's the V8 ported across to the v2.
Page refreshes are quite quick with only a hint of ghosting. (more noticable when coming from an image to text)
My only gripe so far is the page movement button, which is kinda difficult to move with my fat western fingers.

Are the page refreshes faster than on the iLiad?

It's not reading Txt files natively, but can it read anything other than wol's without conversion? Pdfs? Html files?

So true.
The pictures do not do the cover justice it's really glossy, much like a car paint job shiny.

You can see in the movie that the page transistions are really quick, although it does suffer from ghosting especially going from an image to text, but not enough to really annoy.
I think they set this model onto the quickest transition.

The ghosting didn't look bad at all - I'll gladly trade ghosting for fast page turns like that. That's faster than a print book, I think!

Now my only question is when it will be available to purchase...

Thanks for the video!

The location of the iLiad users are available online. Go check the Tribble's iLiad threads for the map url.

Thumbs up reference for the images

hey,

it'd be awesome if you could post images of the V2 next to a real book for reference of what the screen looks like compared to paper - like TaKir did over in this post on a different thread...

cheers

Well i'll give it a shot, but I'm experiencing 'technical difficulties' at the moment with the V2 (i.e. it's stopped working ) I'm arranging a skype chat with the engineers at the moment to see if we can get it re-booted and working again.

Quality of screen Jinke can be estimated here

http://www.lbook.com.ua/ru/news/FotoBank

The photo of the device are received by means of the usual scanner, instead of the camera.

Actually the screen has a light grey shade, pleasant for reading.

Screens at Jinke V2 &V8 and at Sony Librie and 500 absolutely identical also have identical PN.

Distinction between Jinke and Sony in various algorithms of scanning. In Jinke the fast algorithm of change of the image is used. But speed reduces brightness of a background (very few ~5 %) a little.
