Thanks for the no nonsense, honest user reviews and pictures. Impressive device. Very tempting. But I think I'll hold off until somebody comes out with an 8 inch or 10 inch device.

No problem! Yeah, ill prob get an 8 inch when it comes out, but if no one braves the newness, they wont get money lol and the 8 inch wont be made. It is a little small, main reason for color is comics, and as long as they are cbr's they work fine. 8 inch, with 32k color though, say in 3 years....GAMECHANGER!!!

This looks great. I'm very tempted. I've been with Kindle for many years now so I may wait up to a year to see if they release one first, but any day I might bite the bullet and get this one because I've been wanting a colour ereader forever.

Same here, love my Voyage and my Kindle Keyboard still works, but I've been waiting a long time it feels like for a colour ereader. I'm probably just going to order it!

Thank you.

As expected the screen – without front light – is considerably darker.
As I read novels and edited versions of text web articles, mostly wikipedia, I don't think I'm in the market for it unless I was to read a load of comics or graphic novels.
It's an amazing achievement, but at the end of the day a compromise between best monochrome for text and real colour. So very, very niche. I'll stick to the 10" Lenovo LCD tablet when I really need colour, which is about 1/2 the price of a Forma, and my Kobo libra for novels and occasional collated articles (like about 300 pages on characters in ancient Celtic myths collected from CELT, Wikipedia and Sacred Texts websites, pasted into LO Writer, fixed up and made into an ebook with Calibre).

Cancelled and ordered through sotel.de

TL;DR: Don't order the pocketbook color using pccomponentes.com if you want it asap.

Does support Adobe DRM though, so you can transfer the files downloaded onto your computer to the Pocketbook and load the books from these, no?

Yes. Since the PocketBook has ADE built-in, you can borrow from Overdrive via PocketBook's web browser (it will retain the password and it accepts bookmarks, so it's relatively easier, taking into account how slow eReader browsers are). Just download the ascm file and tap on it to download the book.

You can also use a smartphone or computer to borrow the book and use Send-To-PocketBook to send the ascm file to the PocketBook. This gets the ascm file to your PocketBook without any physical connections to your computer, smartphone or tablet. Again, just tap on the ascm file and it will download the book.

Or you can download the ascm file to your computer and, using your USB cable, copy it to your Download folder. And then just tap the ascm file and it will download your book.

There's also a DropBox app available. I haven't tried it yet, but I'm assuming it could also be used for getting the ascm file to your PocketBook.

So no direct support for Overdrive, but lots of options. (All these methods also work for buying DRM ePubs from various eBook stores, like Kobo, Google Books, etc.)
