Hanvon’s color e-reader now taking pre-orders in China

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on November 11th, 2010

Remember Hanvon’s new color e-reader? It’s up for pre-order in China for the insane price of 3,500 Chinese Yuan. That’s $530. The report comes from DigiTimes. That’s pretty steep, but I guess they figure that the very first E Ink Triton-equipped device anywhere is worth a premium.

Whatever the reason you can pre-order the device if you happen to be in China and have the dough. Assuming you don’t mind paying a tablet price for an ereader.

Posted in ebooks by Conner Flynn on July 5th, 2010

Sony is helping to heat up the e-book reader price wars. It has now dropped the prices on its three current models. The Pocket Edition was $169 and is now $149, while the Touch Edition drops from $199 to $169, and the 3G Daily Edition is now $299 from $349.

It should be noted that this still leaves Sony a bit behind the competition: the Pocket Edition lacks WiFi unlike the similarly-priced Nook and the Daily Edition will be hard to sell even at $299.
