Astak eBook Reader

MobileRead has the press release: Astak’s press release for the EZ Reader

Astak has an old description of three models of eBook readers here.

One bit of the press release I can’t allow to go unscathed:

This unit has been a total of 8 years in development. Our band of eBook Reader bashers tried hard to get this to “hang up” or show a glitch. and it is as error-free and solid as you will find!

Emphasis added by me.

Uh, say what? Eight years?

Sony did its original eBook reader, the Librie, in 2004:

The LIBRIe reader is the result of a three-year collaboration between Sony, Royal Philips Electronics, Toppan Printing and E Ink.

Emphasis added by me.

That would put the Librie in 2001 for a development start.

Yet Astak (who?) claims it began in 2000?
