There's been a bit of discussion about the white and black versions of the Novel and I guess everyone has seen the FCC link for the black onehttps://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas...me=N&application_id=933054&fcc_id='POTPRD07T'I wanted to post something so that maybe the better sleuths out there can have more luck than me finding out the details on the white one.This is a link to the FCC search engine.https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/reports/GenericSearch.cfmusing this you can find all the details about any device that uses any kind of communications.For the black Novel the Grantee code is POTand the Product code is PRD07TThat's all you need and you will get the results shown in the first link. POT is the company who made the black Novel. A search of them only shows 9 results. The last result is the black Novel.Every company has a unique 3 digit code and obviously a unique product code.I just looked at the back of my iPhone 3GS and it showed a FCC ID as BCGA1303ABCG is the company code for Apple and A1303A is the iPhone product codeGo ahead stick the codes in and have a look at the images etc. Pretty cool. You will notice that Apple blanked out all the chip IDs.The back of the Novel shows an FCC code of TLZ-NU706. That means the manufacturer is different so I did a search on TLZ and it gives 40 results, some of which show NU706 as the product code. Bingo, I thought. The white one is made by a different company. Sadly the product is the 802.11/b/g/n USB wireless mini card and antenna and not the actual unit.And that's where I drew a blank. The model numbers for the white and black use the same core (PRD07T10) so I wondering if there isn't an FCC for the white as it seems to be using the FCC code for the Wireless, but the black has something new in the design that needed a separate FCC test, maybe because wireless is incorporated onto the PCB.Happy hunting :)

Anyone? I'm not as tech-savy as you guys. I'm an IT guru compared to the average consumer (LOL) but not so much in this area. I'm like Leonardo DaVinci in last week's Futurama.In y humble opinion, teh ability to upgrade the internal memory to possibly as much as 32GB and possibly the card reader the same bring the total to potentially 64 in the white makes that one a winner. Or even just having more memory (not even maxed) than a stinkin' 2 GB internal makes white the winner.Buuuuut...The black's styling looks a lot nicer to me, though that's subjective since I've read that others seem to think the black looks cheap! I don't care much for the location or count of the speaker - one on the back-side (bottom if lying flat, away from you when holding in hand or on stand). But other than that, cosmetically I like it and the included stylus... of course neither styling or stylus are worth loosing the ability to slide it open and double, quadruple + the internal memory.So experts... verdict anyone?

Let's see what they release. The white did not conform to its FCC test specs as I recall. The black might surprise us. It might come out with a rainbow colored apple missing a bite, or something...

Lawman.... that sounded like a very lawyer-y, politician, televangelist sort of answer. The white was better or worse than the FCC app specs? And based on these, what say you.... jediiiii?

BUMPed, because I found this while searching for the Cruz Reader.Here's the FCC info on the White Novel:https://fjallfoss.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas...me=N&application_id=486447&fcc_id='TLZ-NU706'Looks like the wireless company themselves put in the FCC request, maybe because the device is not soldered into the board. I also noticed that the hardware vendor(s) of the white Novel seem to be the same vendors for the Cruz Reader. The black Novel, on the other hand, is a completely different hardware vendor.
