Really silly question: will this book have the original Summoner or the Unchained version?
I don´t think it´s a silly question, Eric. :-)
I strongly guess the content is the exact same as the second printing of the hardcover, which means it will contain the original (broken/overpowered) Summoner.
Still, this is an instant buy for me, as i really love my "Core Rulebook Pocket Edition" and "Bestiary Pocket Edition".

Will this edition be updated with new errata?
I doubt it.The previous two pocket editions had the exact same content as the most recent printing.
Otherwise the effort for these books would be too great and price would have to go up.
I am very glad the APG is in the 2nd wave of pocket editions, as it is the one i have to take with me every time, along with the CRB and Bestiary, when being a traveling GM.
Bestiary 2, Ultimate Magic and Ultimate Combat would have to be the next ones to be given the pocket edition treatment.
I don´t think the Gamemastery Guide was a good choice from a financial viewpoint, it was probably done for completion´s sake.
I also know no GM who brings it with him/her, it´s more something to read at home when planning a campaign.
well, maybe the stock of hardcovers is down (seeing as that print run was 2010!) so they'd have to do a 3rd printing in the near future anyway, then the softcover might get that 3rd printing errata a bit early.
which would mean the remaining 2nd printing hardcovers won't sell... and they'd probably have to do a print run for hardcover and pocket, which makes the 3rd printing hardcovers financially unattractive (low volume means high cost)...
Boy am I glad to not have to make such business decissions
