InfiBeam Pi – India’s first native ebook reader

InfiBeam is a web retailer based in India whose chief feature is that it's trying to be an Amazon clone. That makes sense; if you're going to copy someone why not copy the most successful?

Just like Amazon, InfiBeam has their new ebook reader front and center on the homepage. The InfiBeam Pi appears to be a stock Netronix Eb-600, and from the format support I'd say it's using a slightly modified version of the stock firmware as well, which means it should have support for Adobe DE DRM. InfiBeam is also promising support for "Hindi, Sanskrit, and most official Indian languages".

It's scheduled to ship on 22 February with a retail of Rs 9,999.

About Nate Hoffelder (11578 Articles)
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."
