Pocketbook 360 or pocket pro

I just read text file.
The most important thing is long battery life and portable.
Which one is better choice?

Thanks.

I may be biased as I have the PB360 but I think if you're looking for an e-ink device which is highly portable and that has an excellent battery life - the PocketBook is your no 1 choice!

Very light, slim and with a screen protected while not in use with a hard cover. The battery (after the initial couple of charges) is the best of all my e-ink devices and will now last between 2.5-3 weeks on a single charge.

I'd go for the Pocketbook because of the hard shell. Battery life, I've been going for a few months on my Mini but then, I don't use it very much at this time of year (not enough light, I prefer a backlit in winter...)



(oh, I'd not buy a Pocketbook myself, due to the hard shell, I want a soft cover personally... but I presume with portability you want to take it with you everywhere and want the lessen the chance of a cracked screen)

I would go with a Pocketbook 360. I love mine. I have a Cool-er that has a larger screen but I don't notice the slightly smaller screen causing me any problems.

Both the PP and 360 have 5" screens. But personally I wouldn't like the hard cover. I believe you can click it behind the device, right? But it's still cold and stiff and not soft and warm like my Mini cover!

It looks like Pocketbook 360 is the choice now. Thanks a lot!
