Acer might have an ebook reader on the way

Bloomberg interviewed the President of IT Products yesterday. Here is what Jim Wong said about ebook readers:


By the end of June, Acer will announce its first electronic book reader featuring a 6-inch monochrome screen, and distributed initially in up to five European countries, Wong said. The device would compete with Amazon’s Kindle, Barnes & Noble Inc.’s Nook and Sony Corp.’s Reader.

“Amazon, Barnes & Noble; they are U.S.-centric. In Western Europe and Asia-Pacific we have publishers to work with, and most of them are content owners,” Wong said. Acer is talking to magazine, newspaper and book publishers to provide content for its device, he said without naming them.

Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader: "I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
