Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on May 6th, 2010

Add another to the ever growing mass of e-Book readers available. Looks like the Wi-Fi Alliance has certified the Samsung E65 e-book reader, a successor to Samsung’s first E60 e-book reader. It’s no iPad, but you might want to give it a look.

The new model features a 6-inch e-ink display that supports an electromagnetic resonance (EMR) stylus pen, a full QWERTY keypad, text-to-speech, Bluetooth 2.0 connectivity, and MP3 playback capability.

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on April 29th, 2010

The Wefound F630 e-book reader is a lightweight at just 200 grams if you are looking for a different ereader. Aside from the snappy name, it sports a 6-inch screen E-ink display with a resolution of 800 x 600 pixels.

The Wefound F630 also has a built-in China Mobile 3G wireless module, offering unlimited free EDGE and 3G connection via a China Mobile SIM card for the first 3 years after purchase. Some other features include book downloading, stock price information, picture browsing (in black and white) and basic MP3 player functions.

Bookeen’s upgraded Cybook Opus to debut on May 7

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on April 29th, 2010

If you’ve been waiting, the color version of the Cybook Opus is now upon you. The device will come in seven new colors with a May 7 release date. The freshly updated Cybook Opus features instant-on functionality, a new Boo Reader software to help optimize battery life, and 12 font sizes.

It’s still a monochrome E Ink display at 800 x 600 pixels and memory is still 1GB, but the price has gone down to £149 ($199 in USA). 150 books come preloaded on the device, so that price is pretty awesome.

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on April 21st, 2010

If you’re finding it hard to choose an e-book reader, here’s another entry to the market. The Paradigm Shift EER-051D will be launched in the US sometime next week. This e-reader features a 5-inch color display, an integrated FM tuner, an MP3 player and a photo viewer.

It comes with 2GB of internal memory, which is upgradable via an SD memory card slot. The Paradigm Shift EER-051D will be compatible with most popular e-book formats, including DRM-enabled ePub books.

Alex eReader from Spring Design now shipping

Posted in ebooks by Shane McGlaun on April 14th, 2010

The Alex eReader was popular during CES and has been the source of a legal battle between Spring Design and Barnes & Noble. If you have been waiting to get your hands on the Alex, you can now do just that.

The Alex is now shipping for $399. That price is $100 off the price of the much more capable iPad, which may make some that have been waiting for the Alex lean more to the iPad. The Alex has dual screens.

Kobo eReader for $150

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on March 25th, 2010

Kobo has unveiled their own eBook reader and it looks like a good affordable option for those who don’t want to buy a Kindle or Nook. The Kobo eReader lacks 3G, but there is a lot to like here. Just look at that quilted, vinyl back and you can skin the face with a cloth or leather facade. Most of the buttons are on the side because you have a blue navigational pad in front. It comes equipped with 1GB of storage, but will handle a 4GB SD card.

The device supports EPUB or PDF transfered over USB, and you can sync via Bluetooth across devices loaded with Kobo’s app. This one should be pretty popular.

Samsung E6 e-reader hitting Barnes and Noble this spring for $299

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on March 9th, 2010

We still don’t have a formal launch date for Samsung’s e-reader line that it launched at CES, but it will be sometime “this spring”. We do have some news about the six-inch E6 at the moment.

Samsung says the E6 will be $299 at launch. No news about the 10-inch E10 or the E61. Just that they “may be coming soon,”. The question is do you prefer the E6 over the Nook?

1Cross Tech MIDhybrid Android-powered e-reader looks like a book

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on March 8th, 2010

If you feel that reading something that looks and feels like a bound book is better than a Kindle, then this may be up your alley. 1Cross Tech’s MIDhybrid is an e-reader that looks like a book. There’s an E-Ink screen on the left and a small LCD plus keypad on the right, with a hinge in the middle that allows it to fold in half either way.

It’s Marvell-powered and runs Android 1.6 which allows you to render content from the LCD over to the E-Ink screen. The device also features 3G, Bluetooth, and a front webcam. No price or release date just yet though.

Bmorn B80 color ebook reader

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on February 26th, 2010

ebook readers are everywhere these days and it seems that every manufacturer is jumping on the bandwagon. The latest from China is the Bmorn B80 ebook reader. While we don’t have very much information about it, we can tell you that it comes with a color display.

We have no idea what kind of color screen, but the battery life is probably not that good anyway. We don’t see this being a Kindle rival anytime soon anyway.

Brother Japan to release a $1,100 e-book reader

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on February 12th, 2010

The SV-70 will probably not be coming to the States and that’s just fine with us. It ditches the Bluetooth module of its predecessor and the 2GB microSD card that was included for a lower price of $1,100 MSRP.

The rest of the specs are the same: a 9.7-inch, 1200 x 825 display, 100MB of internal memory, microSD expansion slot, and 83 hours worth of battery life. That’s a lot of document reading time. We wonder how business guys will actually take this device.

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on February 8th, 2010

Barnes and Noble has production of the Nook shifted into high gear at last.

Yinlips iPad clone with E-Ink

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on February 6th, 2010

Many people love the idea of the iPad, but don’t like the LCD screen. If that’s how you feel then check out what Yinlips has in store. Their iPad lookalike features an E-Ink screen.

Of course there are some downsides. No color here and it won’t run any of those apps you love, but if you don’t mind the trade-off this device may be for you. It features a 6″ E-Ink touchscreen, 20 hours of battery life, and supports PDF, TXT, HTML, and some photo formats.

Posted in ebooks by Shane McGlaun on January 29th, 2010

The Barnes & Noble Nook is one of the coolest eReaders on the market right now. The Nook proved to be so popular during the holiday season that they were sold out until this month. If you were able to get your hands on a Nook, M-Edge has a new line of accessories for you.

The new line includes a slew of jackets and sleeves in different styles and colors ranging from over 450 to under $30 depending on what you choose. Some of the sleeves are fancy leather and others are neoprene.
