Summary: The Pocketbook is well made, a little heavy, but quality construction. I use a stylus with it, but swiping the page while reading does work nice. Although while on web it seems a little jerky. Does not work with my Macbook Pro which is a huge disappointment, because it did say works with Mac. Does not show up in usb connections. Will call Apple to find out why. Others on forum have same problem. Have to use my old Windows XP laptop.
Summary: As I was in the market for an ebook reader, I saw the Pocketbook IQ and thought it looked pretty good. It exceeds my expectations. On a prior device, there were some pdf files that required reflow in order to read at a desirable magnification. It was a nightmare. The Pocketbook excels in pdf capabilities. The display is excellent. I tried a couple of .mp3's and found the quality to be very good. As I have a dedicated .mp3 player, I shall probably continue to use that.
Summary: I was about to get the micro cruz when I found this product. After buying it I am really happy for each single dollar I spent. It is a reader that does a little more than that. Warning: It is not an Ipad but justifies spending only $150 instead of $500. When I was searching products I got the feeling from people that bought both: the kindle for heavy duty and the fancy Ipad to take care at home. Well I needed something nice for the road and in color.
Summary: This was my third and final attempt at getting a good ereader/tablet. After purchasing, returning 3 tablets, and numerous hours of web surfing... Finally found this one. I love it!!! Good quality, feels very solid (I'd rather a bit heavy than feel like it could break at anytime), love the color, love the ability to add apps directly to it. I've downloaded a few books. Started reading one... no problem with reading on this screen. Can change to night reading... bonus!
Summary: I got this item a week ago. For the price it is great. Yes, the hardware is a little sluggish, but you can check e-mail watch you tube videos with its limited resolution. The wifi is good your not waiting forever for things to upload. The battery lasts a long time over 7 hours with Wifi off, I left it on by mistake and it was still running with more time to spare. So you can read a whole day with this thing. It is simple to operate and it comes with over a 1000 books.
Summary: I looked around and did research forever to find a good e-reader. I am very happy with my purchase this thing is amazing! Already had the latest firmware update and everything installed so it saved me all the trouble with that. I love the color and the way its made. So easy to use! Love love love it! I promise you wont be disappointed!
Summary: I purchase the Pocketbook instead of the the Apple Ipad. I am waiting for the Ipad 2 to come out in 2011. I got this device to hold me over until then. I have used the Ipad, this is slower in speed but for the price it is well worth the money. I call it a mini Ipad...
