The PocketBook 603 is PocketBook's premium 6-inch ebook reader and includes a touchscreen and 3G wireless for downloading ebooks, news feeds, periodicals, and for browsing the web with the basic web browser.
The touchscreen is a Wacom Penabled touchscreen that uses a sensor board placed behind the screen to detect the stylus's movements using electromagnetic technology. This ensures that the clarity of the screen is not effected by the touchscreen, but it also means that a special stylus is required for the touch functions to work.
Aside from the 3G wireless and touchscreen, the PocketBook 603 has all the same features and functions as the PocketBook 602 model: WiFi and Bluetooth for connectivity, support for 20 languages, MP3 player, text to speech, notes, bookmarks, highlights, active hyperlinks, apps, support for Adobe DRM, and more.
