Delstar Openbook Review
We just posted a new review of the Delstar Openbook over on The Digital Reader. It's by MR member imaredr, who just joined TDR. Here's what she had to say:

Great review and imaredr was more than fair considering the frustration levels expressed in the MR forums. I agree it seemed to be a great little reader and was disappointed in the lack of text formatting. I returned my device to Walgreen's last weekend.
I didn't read anything from Delstar about future shipments with improved software but that's good to know. If and when they do release the OpenBook with properly functioning software, it really will be a nice, inexpensive, backlit reader.

Of interest, maybe: new firmware has been released for the Teclast TL-K5, the Chinese version of this. It's V2.00, and the img file seems to be about 20-30 MB larger than the latest firmware file available on the Delstar site.
Changes so far seem to be... page-turn speed is quicker... typeface is much clearer... spacing between characters and words is far, far better than before... italics show up... Not sure what else: only just installed it.
The upgrade process is the same as for the other firmware upgrades, but you need to pull the new img file off of a Chinese webpage. If anyone needs a link, let me know.
