a great pity jackie. this is reminiscent of F S when they ditched the original 
pac mate bns and didn't develop any further upgrades for it despite promising 
to do so! I guess they won't have many sales of the classic now! clearly 
customer loyalty counts for nothing with such companies.

  Subject: [access-uk] K-NFB Reader update

  Hi Listers

  For those who have been following the various threads on this topic, I have 
some further interesting news.

  I thought you might like to know that I have today heard from a most reliable 
source that K-NFB Reader Classic, which is the model I have, is no longer being 
developed.  There will be no further software upgrades, and 
  efforts will concentrate solely on the mobile phone version.

  I think this is a dreadful shame, given its huge cost, and an indictment on 
the company in failing to recognise the end users who bought it in good faith.

  While I am still delighted with my Reader, it is hugely disappointing to know 
that it will not be improved upon, and that those connected with the K-NFB 
project will now turn their efforts to the mobile phone version.  My 
understanding is that the current Readers will be sold for £1,300 instead of 
the original £2,625.
