Hi Gordon, What are you on about? Book Courier is a completely different subject. And for the record, I am not aware I have been asked on this list as to whether we will get the same trade-in discounts. Well as far as I am aware, we will get the same, or as level a playing field as we can make it. All the best Steve _____ From: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Gordon Keen Sent: Sunday 10 February 2008 13:45 To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: [access-uk] Re: K-NFB Reader update Oh come on Steve, you may have come up smelling of roses on this comparison but if it makes a profit...Book courier and all that, we still don't know if U.K. customers are going to get the same trade in deal as U.S. customers do we and you seem to be keeping very quiet about that situation despite requests from many of us. So, remember the old adage about people who live in glass houses. Regards G From glorious Devon, England.

This means that as cameras get better, you can buy a new camera, without buying the whole kit again. Also, the PC is a standard UMPC, which means nothing is bolted to it. So again, as PCs or UMPCs get better, you can buy the UMPC new without buying the software again. This is one reason I don't like things bolted together in such a way that the only way to upgrade it, is to rely on the manufacturer. The only down side I could see, would be if Recognizer itself stops being developed, which is of course, not what is happening to KNFB. Here, they are kicking it, because the hardware is not upgradable. Just my opinion.
