Okay, so looks like it was not a leak but an official announcement. German press release, more info in English.

Very neat looking devices. But that's some wide bezels (not that I mind, but some sure will). Overall very nice design though.

Some details from the PR (helped by Google Translate):
1) All new models are made by FoxConn (maker of Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader, iPhone/iPad)
2) TTS: 4 languages preinstalled, 28 possible.
3) Accelerometer
4) 16 ebook formats including EPUB and PDF with DRM
5) dictionaries for 20 languages (unclear if preinstalled or not)
6) text annotation
7) multiple directory levels to organize books
8) widgets on desktop (what?)
9) integrated bookstore connected to bookland.net

Nobody has a better reputation than PocketBook, but I'll withhold judgment on these devices' sales potential until I learn the prices.

Seems installed to me ("integrierte" -> integrated)

The new models look nice IMO, especially the 90x (though it's unclear to me which touchscreen technology the 902 uses), but we have to wait until November...By then there will be some new from Sony too I guess.

Oh, forgot to mention: all models include WiFi and Bluetooth. PocketBook IQ is an Android LCD tablet, Pro series are E-Ink. Premium models (603 and 903) add 3G and Wacom touchscreen.

All good looking models! These hardwares + already existing excellent firmware by Pocketbook will be big plus for pocketbook.
Eagerly waiting for the product details of 902 and the preorder date!

Looks like 602 / 902 doesn't have a stylus. Are they only fingertouch??

Interesting tidbit mentioned by lezen.net:
Quote:
Pocketbook sagte uns zur Begründung, Netronix könne die wachsende Nachfrage von zuletzt 50.000 Lesegeräten monatlich nicht befriedigen, weshalb für die neuen Modelle ein größerer Zulieferer ausgewählt werden musste - die "alten" Reader würden aber weiterhin von Netronix kommen
"Pocketbook said that Netronix could not handle the demand of over 50000 devices per month and so alternative supplier had to be found. The old models will continue to be produced by Netronix."

No touchscreen at all from what I can gather. They're being positioned as entry models.

I want dimensions and price! [I'm not picky after all ;-)].

However, don't like the HUMONGOUS bezels [and I have never used the word bezel in real life except here. My friends, I am doomed]
