Note Taking on the Pocketbook 360
#1  luqmaninbmore 11-06-2009, 03:21 PM

Can anybody describe to me how the note taking works on the pocketbook 360, given that it doesn't have a keyboard or touch screen? I assume it uses the d-pad in a manner similar to an old school cell phone, but will this work to allow any decent speed in note taking (i.e. would I be able to take notes at a meeting like I can with my Sony 700 or my wife's Kindle?). This device looks awesome and I am excited that it is available in the US, but I want to clarify this before I decide to purchase it.

Here is the quote from the other thread here, it's somebody who just got the PB360:
Here a short review after some 20 hours of reading on the device:
First, I am even more impressed then I was in the beginning:
The software runs very stable and supports such things as the adding of Fonts from Windows (just drag&drop), user changeble margins while reading (!!!) - no more wasted screen estate- as well as auto hyphenation, and dictionaries.
I was surprised at how easy it was to write notes, even if the device doesn't have a touch screen. Today I will buy my first drm epub for the pocketbook and give it a test run with it too...
I'm not sure that it would be as fast as on any touchscreen, but still it is easy and relatively fast. There is a virtual keyboard and you move between the keys with the help of buttons.
