Why Has it Scored 69?

Pocketbook is a very good E-book reader brand.
It is over 2 years old and it is likely that newer, better E-readers are available.
This E-book reader has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Has a touchscreen
Bigger than average internal storage capacity
Comfort of reading with E ink carta screen
Reading with no borders!
Mobile library at your fingertips
Simple elegance
Only 800 x 600 pixels resolution
Does not have a backlight display

What is the Kagoo Score?

We calculate the Kagoo Score for each E-book reader by looking at its reviews, features, popularity, age and value for money.

The Kagoo Score is an easy way to understand whether the E-book reader is recommended.

The Kagoo Scores are constantly being updated. As newer, higher spec E-book readers come to market, the older E-book readers will gradually have their Kagoo Score reduced.
