I'm updating the first page as things change. Some web sites do say that they have stock. No doubt all will become clear in a day or two. I'd guess that some embargo on information is just coming to an end.

I've just ordered it at pccomponentes.com and it says "imminent entry", and expected delivery on Tuesday 4th or Wednesday 5 of August.

So they don't have stock right now but they may have a tracking number as they seem certain that they'll have them in the next days.

I’ll believe it when the units are in people’s hands then. For right now this is only a bit more reliable than GoodeReader taking preorders

Is there any reason that you doubt PocketBook's word on this so much? They have been producing ereaders for twelve years at a regular rate, and seem to know what they are doing.

Now that it's appeared on the main pocketbook site, I'm willing to beleive that it'll be in end users hands in just a few days.

I don’t doubt they’re working on this it’s more that it’s sprung up as pre orders before and been delayed.

I've got a feeling Cyfranek has dealt with this seller in the past, so I'll take his word on this. GoodEReader has been taking orders on the PocketBook Color for over three months now, that's not what happened with this Polish dealer.

The color looks rather ‘tired’. No doubt the text is somewhat fuzzed by the extra layer as well. Perhaps there are people who can accept these compromises, but I’m not one of them.

This one https://www.digitec.ch/en/amp-page/t...r-screen-17060 says that it has 300dpi in b/w mode, 100dpi in color. Does that mean that the color layer can be turned on and off with software?

Anyone know if it's the screen that is in either color (100dpi) or gray (300dpi) mode, or can parts of the screen be in different modes?
