I agree with you for the most part, bhaggerty, but I think the stylus/notation capability is more important than you see it as being. I think the ability mark up documents and send them back or on to someone else is necessary to truly take over most of the paper usage in our work worlds.

Lawyers, doctors, professors, news people, office workers from clercks all the way to CEO's, and at least a thousand other possibilities.

The content is provided by http://www.isoshu.com/... not sure whether it's all legal or what.

I added the STK-101 to our Matrix. If you have more information, feel free to expand it.

Yeah, makes me a bit (more) skeptical about this "free" content.

I mean, sheesh, you can still see the Reader's buttons under the dropped in starebook image in the lower, right-hand image (along the edge). C'mon guys.

So, Nathan, would you call this "Hardware Piracy" or "Image Piracy"?

That is so hilarious ... they did not even bother to take a new pic?? ... or perhaps they are the OEM for Sony Reader?

I'm beginning to think it's more like disrespect.

Here's a press release from them where they claim to have "beaten" Sony, whom they apparently consider the industry leader:
Quote:
A world lightest and thinnest ebook reader was firstly launched in the Cheng Du today. It is learned that this kind of the ebook reader has successfully beaten the leader of this industry – SONY, and be the most advanced technology in the world now.
As near as I can tell, they mean that they're the "most advanced" because their reader is the "thinnest and lightest" -- the article suffers from indifferent xlation, and it doesn't really say much. Certainly they haven't beaten the Sony Reader on price or sales (they're a hundred bucks more, and they just launched).

A friend who played with their software (which apparently gave his anti-virus software conniptions, BTW) sent me some screen caps which I've attached. I haven't played with the software myself, nor am I likely to after his experience, but all I'd want to see is these screen caps show anyway, so....

From the caps, the book he looked at looks like a scan & OCR job. They did include the copyright info, which is a bit ironic, given my increasing suspicion that their content may be 'free' because they didn't pay for it in the first place.

As you can see, there's also an ad-space at the front, so they're clearly expecting some revenue from that.

Beyond that, apparently a lot of the english covers they show sport the Amazon "look inside" logos on them, so it would seem that ... borrowing the Sony marketing pix isn't an isolated thing.

It seems to me that if this is a good product, then it'll stand on its own well enough. While I am a bit put off by what seems to be their attitude toward other folks' property rights, the hardware (what little we actually know about it) looks reasonably nice. The light, thin (apparently plastic) case makes me want to hold it in my hand before I decide whether how durable it might be. I'm also concerned about the apparent disinterest in any formats other than their proprietary one. That seems like a bit of a step backwards to me.

They have a bunch of other releases (four just yesterday) here, but they seem to be more of the same: vaunting, low on actual info, and indifferently xlated.

I'm not sure about you guys...but this whole starthing is starting to seriously annoy me. I'm always for a new ereader on the market...but this advertising campaign is a bit (or rather a lot) of hot air.

I'll repeat what I said in the other thread...provide us with a sample...we'll give it a go, compare it to the other ereaders around (the Iliad and the Sony Reader and of course the Hanlin V8) and then we'll see how the device compares.

And please...stop spamming the forum with pointless press-releases and ads.

Thanks.

I removed the previous message. Any further posts on the STAReBOOK which include only meaningless content such as "I love it!" will be deleted without further notice.
