New e-reader for the Brazilian market
A recent posting on the Teleread blog features a photo and details about a new e-reader that will be released in Brazil in June 2010. The reader will feature a 6” e-ink touch screen, QWERT keyboard, 8 GB of internal memory, wifi, internal reading light, and Bluetooth capability. The reader will support a variety of formats but there are no plans to support EPUB. The posting notes that device will also be useful for the classroom because it will support the sharing and creation of content and school tests.
