PocketBook 633 is ~$220 at most retailers. The downside seems to be the slow B288 chipset - 2x1GHz, 1GB RAM and 2.4Ghz Wifi, BT3 only. Expect same slowness as on 632, or worse due to color. PB633 has larger battery (1900mAh) than onyx, so should last a bit longer in theory.

As for onyx, it's a modern cellphone chipset - 8x2Ghz, 2GB RAM and dual-band wifi, BT 4.1. It should be noticeably snappier. It runs Android. It's now much more a lot like tablet with e-ink than conventional e-reader.
I have one, and it's pretty damn fast at refreshing the screen.

What's worse is that the Poke2 Color units are lost in shipping.

So, I was one of the people that ordered one when they were available. Maybe the last one, I dunno.

But I got a notification today from DHL that it had arrived at a Hong Kong sorting facility. Delivery is now expect on Monday the 31st.

I'm really getting excited now.

Does anyone know if "poke" translates into something interesting in another language? Because in English, it's a strange word to use as the name of a device.

It's a strange word in English, being both a verb meaning to jab or prod, and an archaic noun for a bag. (As in "a pig in a poke")

"poke" is a the name of a Rarotongan dessert - something starchy made from bananas iirc. My Cook Island friends swear by it, I personally would be more likely to swear at it.

A "poke" is a small conical container, usually made of paper. As in "a poke of chips".

A couple of other definitions for poke.

The projecting brim on the front of a bonnet.

An Hawaiian marinated seafood salad.

And this without having to leave English behind.

Interesting that two cousin languages, Hawaiian and Cook Island Māori, have such different definitions for a word spelled identically in both.

I was familiar with the English terms poke as a verb, or a bag ("pig in a poke"), poke bonnet, pokeweed.... None of which I associate with ereaders
