Eventually someone will do what he says and compare Pocketbook's products with Kindle's, Sony's etc. I'm beginning to wonder about those Pearl screens though...Only element of comparing we have is Kindle 2/DX vs Kindle 3/DXG, the later looking considerably better, but then there's another a thread in the Kindle forum where you it seems Kindle 2i and Kindle 2 don't have the same contrast, when they're supposed to have the same screen. I thought all the screen of the same generation would have the same quality / contrast, but it doesn't seem that simple. Plus it's unclear to me how the better contrast is achieved...Is it on the software side, hardware side, etc.

Sadly it will be hard or impossible for me (here in France), as for most people in fact, to be able to compare a Kindle 3, Sony 650 and Pocketbook 603 side by side. So they can say "well just compare the devices", knowing can't....Or maybe the Pearl screens are not that much better ?
I think he expected that the convincing presentation of the software of their reader would get all the attention of the audience, and he had a hard time hiding his irritation when he realized that the first question was the dreaded one about Pearl.
If they had Pearl I may have bought their large reader. Too bad they do not.
I understand I cannot blame them for that. But if they wanted to convince me they should have bought a new Kindle DX with Pearl to show it side by side with their own readers.

So you prefer to read the Russian media? Because they are so free?

We bought Kindl 3 and compared with the pocketbook 603 ... On standard settings the letters from Kindl 3 a little more black and white screen is the same ... But we have to do a comparative video, it's not a very beautiful form of competition ... The fact that Kindl 3 visible to the eye does not improve the contrast of 50% should be said after comparing someone not related to the pocketbook.

Where is your video? It should take five minutes to put it on youtube.

When you do video, DO select the font for PocketBook device very carefully. Caecilia font that Kindle uses enhances the perception of blackness of the text. When I tried Caecilia bold on my PocketBook the text did look more black.
It would be the best if you prepared some bitmaps and show them side-by-side.

I am not trying to say that it is ALL due to careful font selection, because the new screens are better. The question is how much better they are.

I think he mean he/someone from pocketbook cannot put such comparison video with competitor's product and this has to be done by someone outside pocketbook.

You don't say more because you are ashamed of what you would write.

If you read some of my Slashdot posts you would know that this is not true. Heck, the fact that I don't use a pseudonym on slashdot is enough to prove that this acquisitions is untrue.

Well, well, in the EU (e.g. under german commercial law) comparative advertising is reglemented and anyone using it runs on knifes edge. Can be quite costly if one doesn't step carefully. So it's rather easy to criticize, if one doesn't have to shoulder the risc. Though it could be done.

Someone else will eventually do the comparison alright.

There are countless videos on youtube of readers side by side, and I never heard of a company sued for such a video. Let us be realistic!

Are they issued from a German based company?
Are they issued by one of the companies compared at all?
Are they advertised (by link or so) by one of the companies compared?

For all the videos I have seen the answer is NO on all accounts. All the videos I have found have been made by enthusiasts not affiliated with the products shown and being ignored by the companies who's products are shown.

As if secret services would track an anonymous video on youtube comparing two readers!
You are so funny!
