The large bezel looks distracting to me, but I'm sure I'd get used to it if I had to. I was hoping that the new models would work in the hard plastic cover. That's one of my favourite features of the PB360.

It was a press conference, and they announced release dates (July 2010!) and prices!

Why should I trust them, now?

Nobody forces you to trust us now .... The small difference ...

1. Now at the IFA 2010 will be shown not prototypes as before, but before the production models.
2. Output new line will be before Christmas, six months ago, we could still necessary that a change, now that there is no time .

I wonder about the weight. I really hope that they are lighter than the iTampon.

It better include something spectacular or be cheap. The market's already drowned with 7-inch tablets running Android, and if Pocketbook makes a "follower" model with no particular strengths, it will sink. That's not to say I wouldn't like it as a gift

Is the Wacom "Touchscreen" really pen+touch or just pen?

Maxy?

Anyone else notice the prominent label "Maxy" above the screen of the IQ? This takes the whole compete with the iPad thing too far (yes, at least it isn't "MAXi," or "maxiPad"). I can even see the tag line: "When you need a pad, you need Maxy!" Or, "For heavy use, a regular iPad just won't cut it - Grab a Maxy!"

Seriously, the 900s look interesting if they had pen notetaking for academics, but I'm awaiting the Pearl update to the 360, as 5" readers are my prefered casual reader size. I've heard the nest gen 360 is 2011.

A fairly loose approximation to "English". Obviously not written by a native English speaker.

I have to strongly object on your use of "native English speaker". I, not being a native English speaker, would have done a better job. :-D

The text does read funny indeed; reminds me of Engrish funny.
