PocketBook 301+ Comfort review

,----[ Quote ]
| The PocketBook 301+ is actually a recent 
| update of the original model released in 
| 2007, itself based on a popular eReader 
| design thatâs been sold by various 
| companies. Ukrainian in origin, the 
| original 301 was a variant on the Netronix 
| EB-600 eReader and essentially offered the 
| same basic spec as a very wide range of 
| other eReaders â around seven or eight of 
| them in total. The 301+ improves the 
| specification in several ways, though the 
| quality of the E Ink screen and a sizable 
| increase in internal storage capacity (up 
| to 512MB from 256MB) are two of the key 
| areas here. It features second-generation 
| Vizplex E Ink electronic paper (the same 
| tech as adopted by Sony for its 505 among 
| others), and boasts a resolution of 
| 600Ã800 pixels on its 6-inch screen. It 
| can cater for 16 shades of grey â which, 
| like its size, is essentially the standard 
| for eReaders at the moment.

EDA Spins into the Realm of Software

| Mentor Graphics is pushing into Linux,

| is already widely distributed.



EDA Focus Shifts To Software

| Mentor already is looking well beyond just the
| chip. Its Nucleus RTOS and Linux tools strategy
| are playing a big role in the companyâs move
| into a variety of communications devices. Case
| in point: The deal with Freescale that was
| announced this week to provide specific
| features in the Linux to support the silicon is
| a first for an EDA company.
