PocketBook 902 and PocketBook 903

PocketBook 903 Review

The PocketBook 902 and 903 have large 9.7-inch screens, the same size as the Kindle DX, and are the first real competitors to challenge the DX.

The 902 is the base model and the PocketBook 903 comes with upgraded features: a Wacom touchscreen and 3G wireless.

The larger screen size is more suited for PDFs, textbooks, periodicals, comics, and similar content that is difficult to display properly on a smaller 6-inch ereader.
