Koobe – new e-reader with new touchscreen tech

This actually came out a few days ago, but I waiting to get more information. They're probably overwhelmed with requests. From the press release:

Neonode, Inc. (OTCBB: NEON), the Swedish leading Optical Touchscreen Technology Company, announced today that the newest Koobe Inc e-Book reader, the JinYong Reader, uses its zForce optical touch screen solution for e-book readers.

“Koobe continues to drive the evolution of e-book reader design through style and enhanced capabilities”

The JinYong Reader incorporates an ARM-based application processor connected to a high contrast 6 inch electronic ink display and Neonode´s optical touchscreen, supporting smooth finger input with gestures and sweeps.

The JinYong Reader will feature the work of renowned Chinese martial arts novelist Jin Yong among others and will be sold mainly in the traditional Chinese-language market (including but not limited to) Taiwan and Hong Kong. It will be available in the major book stores and consumer electronics channels.

The JinYong Reader is the slimmest multi-touchscreen capable eReader ever. The device supports text in a wide variety of formats such as PDF, ePub, html, txt, as well as images in JPG, BMP and PNG formats. The internal memory of 2GB can store up to 1500 e-books and can be expandable with a micro-SD memory card (up to 16GB).

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."

  1. I sense a lawsuit coming on. Why is it that they have a picture of the Sony PRS-500. You can even see that it says Sony on the picture. Hilarious!
