Pocketbook 302 eBook Reader review

[ Thanks to Linux User & Developer magazine for this link. ]

"Pros: It's an eReader featuring the full gamut of capabilities – touch screen, Wi‑Fi, Bluetooth, web browsing, RSS feeds and more
Cons: At 280g it's quite heavy and the addition of wireless and touch-screen functionality create some unwanted side effects

"There is currently only one other eBook reader on the market that can match the functionality of the PocketBook 302, and that's Amazon's Kindle. It's certainly an impressive display of know-how from what's essentially a small and relatively unknown company from Ukraine. We first came across Green Reader back in issue 88, where we reviewed the PocketBook 301+ Comfort. It was received very well (scoring an impressive four out of five), thanks to the quality of the screen (second-generation E Ink Vizplex electronic paper), the simple but very comfortable chassis design and the staggering battery life it offers."
