New 7.8″ PocketBook InkPad 3 Pro Looks Nice (Video)


PocketBook InkPad 3 Pro

PocketBook is releasing a new “Pro” version of the Pocketbook InkPad 3 that looks pretty interesting.

It’s mostly the same as the previous model, except they added Bluetooth support and they made the device waterproof, with an IPX8 rating, meaning it can withstand being submerged in 2 meters of water for up to 60 minutes with no ill effects.

They also doubled the internal storage space to 16GB, but unfortunately they removed the microSD card slot.

Like the InkPad 3, the Pro version features a 7.8-inch 300 ppi E Ink Carta screen, and it has a frontlight with adjustable color temperature, which Pocketbook calls a SmartLight.

It has a dual-core processor and 1GB of RAM, with a 1,900 mAh battery. It has Wi-Fi and can sync with the PocketBook Cloud and Dropbox.

The device supports 19 ebook formats, including ePub and PDF, plus a few image formats (JPEG, BMP, PNG, and TIFF) and audio formats (mp3 and m4b).

The dimensions of the PocketBook InkPad 3 Pro are 195 x 136.5 x 8 mm and it weighs in at 225 grams.

Unfortunately Pocketbook doesn’t sell their devices in North America but it looks like a nice ebook reader if you can get your hands on one.

  1. For about two years, I am a happy owner of an original (not waterproof) “InkPad 3” which has become my favorite. No complaints.

  2. Does anyone have a recommended source for these? They look very interesting and I know getting this likely means ordering from Europe; I am willing to do that, but would like a source.

    • They not only look interesting, but are extremely good feature-wise. Build quality is probably considered lower as the body is plastic but it does not look cheap, especially when in the case. I own one, my wife does not let it out of her hands. I created a free dropbox account, put some books. The only thing you need is to refresh the library over wifi and books are in your reader. Light also extremely helpful changing warmth and all.

    • You can get some on Amazon but Google it and go to Amazon that way. Otherwise it doesn’t always show up in their search. Or Good Ereader has them. goodereader.com. I’ve ordered from them a few times.
