Thumbs up News from Bookeen about firmware upgrade

I wrote and asked Bookeen support what the status of the upgrade was, and got a reply about 2 minutes later (!) as follows:

Quote:
The software upgrade will be available very soon. It should be available on the first week of April.
We will announce it on the blog and we will add a support link on our
website.

Best regards,
Bookeen Support Team

Not sure if this is worth to be put on the front-page since we saw mails like that with various advertised release dates from bookeen over the past few months :-).

Anyway. Good luck to all of us that they keep their date this time.

It's just as worth being on the frontpage then Amazon's CEO saying they might possibly maybe get enough stock to someday sometime soonish to fill the backorders for the Kindle.

Sorry? WHAT did you say?!? I cannot blame Bookeen!?! *I* live in sunny (well, more like hazy right this minute), beautiful, liberal, litigious California! We can blame, sue and demand compensation from *ALL* the deep-pockets down the line of causality!

(Not that I would of course. I may live here, but I'm a Libertarian and not one of those sue-at-the-drop-of-a-hat types. )

That's the problem with announced dates.

I'd just as soon they release it when it is ready, and not push it out the door to meet a deadline.

For anyone that's considering buying a Cybook and is a little put off by the "GIV US FIRMWARE NOOOOWWWW!", then please bear in mind that generally speaking it's not an absolute necessity. The Cybook works fine at the moment, the firmware is for extra functionality and polish - and some minor bugs.

It's not like we're all sitting here with useless devices waiting for Bookeen to fix em.

Thanks to ProfJulie, I can at least read library ebooks. I had considered waiting for the update. Glad now that I didn't.

Perfectly useful but the navigation is painfully slow if you have 100 or more books on it and I am becoming more and more irritated with the lack of page number or lack of a sense how much is left of a short story or a novel.

A just read a story in _a Logic Names Joe_ and the lack of page number was really irritating and I would also like page number in the TOC but that is probably impossible so i assume you have to jump to the next story to see how much you have left to read in the current story.

Page numbers in an inline HTML TOC ? You'd need CSS3 for this.

Thanks HarryT for following up with Bookeen and posting their response.

I think Bookeen must be close to final with this update and I hope the few extra days will result in a great update. Since I can read my library books now, I can wait. My Cybook is working quite well.
