Pocketbook respond to my “PB701 clears the FCC” post

October 9th, 2010 by · 10 Comments · hardware news

A couple days ago I posted on the FCC paperwork for the Pocketbook 701. I showed how the 701 bore a striking resemblance to the white PD Novel (and the Cruz Reader).

This got picked up in the Russian language forums on, and a spokesman for Pocketbook posted this response:

The difference between the Pandigital and PocketBook IQ is as follows:

1. Android open platform with the ability to install software for all possible market (in the Pandigital is nothing you can not install)
2. Reliable and updated software by PocketBook
3. Ability to view video and audio
4. Android is now worth 2.0, and in December, will upgrade to 2.2

PocketBook IQ is positioned as – Multimedia e-book

In connection with the development of the color content of periodicals, comic books and video ustroystvotbudet is the first in this segment.

Particular attention is paid to the development of children’s category of multimedia content when the picture book into a game.

Let me give you a 5th reason: the IQ has 3 extra buttons on the front. That means Foxconn have improved the hardware as well as the software. Remember, the white Novel came out in July. That means the IQ will have an extra 5 months of development time. The firmware almost has to be better.
