Possible group purchase of Bookeen E Ink e-reader

Last week Marian and Nat broke the news of Bookeen's plans to introduce their own e-reader based on E Ink technology. What's interesting is that given a minimum order size (which is still unknown), Bookeen may allow us to customize the reader's feature set for ourselves.

MobileReader Yvan has been in contact with Bookeen since and he came up with an ingenious plan. He put up a poll where you can tell us if you would want to buy a Bookeen E Ink reader, and if yes, at what price and in how many units. In Yvan's words:

Quote:
Take a look at the poll. For now I only put up the prices so as to put a number on the people in favor of owning a Bookeen E Ink reader. And since we can vote only once I added quantity choices for those who would like to give one. That would weigh in the balance.

After you vote I invite you to post the features you want and then in a subsequent thread I'll set a poll with the features. Then we'll make another poll to clarify our choices. It'll be complicated but it will work. I have a personal request. I want a Mobile Read logo on the thing!
So here is our chance for our own e-book reader! Go ahead and jump straight to the poll!

I was thinking that too... both readers have the exact same size dimensions.
