Pocketbook 302 Review & Videos
#1  Nate the great 03-16-2010, 08:01 PM
So I just posted the second part of the Pocketbook 302 review over on my blog. Here are an excerpt:
The Pocketbook 302 is just coming on to the market, and I was lucky enough to get one of the first review units. This is part 2 of the review. I posted the first part of the review last week, and it has a fair amount of detail. If you haven’t read it yet, you should. This part will cover entirely different material. Also, you might be interested in the hands on videos I shot.

My Opinion

I’m putting this section first, rather than last, because I think I spent a little too much time pointing out the flaws of PB302. I like it. I could easily see having one as my main e-reader. It’s the first dedicated e-reader that I’ve seen that really lives up to the term e-reader. Most every other device is just an ebook reader; the PB302 is more because it has an RSS Reader and a browser. These features are slightly flawed, yes, but they are features that you can’t get on any other e-reader without a hack (Nook, Iliad). (The Kindle doesn’t count because in most countries you can’t use the browser).

In my opinion, the only ebook reader that can compare with a PB302 is a (hacked) Nook. I’ve thought about this for some time, and I can’t say that one is clearly better than the other. This is great news for the PB302; it costs $80 more. I think I would go for the PB302 myself; I prefer its hardware design.

Any feedback would be appreciated.

heh, those crickets can get pretty loud...well I found the review interesting, I really like the sound of the 302 and considered getting one before diving into the wonderful world of the BeBook Neo.

It's always good to know what else is out there and how your critter compares.

Great videos Nate. Is this with a new camera?

OK, kill the crickets...
thanks for the review, Nate. Always interesting to get a good look at what ever is new - and your video is the next best thing to up-close-and personal.
