Introducing the Onda MyTile 9.7″ ebook reader – video

I just came across this dark horse entry into the ereader field. Onda Communications is an Italian tech company that specializes in wireless devices: Wifi, 3G dongles, etc.  The MyTile is their first ebook reader. It has a 9.7" E-ink touch screen, Wifi, Bluetooth, SD card slot, HDMI out (WTF?), email, handwriting recognition, voice recording, and support for Adobe DE DRM. Onda are also offering to help customize the MyTile to fit a niche market, and the optional upgrades include 3G, GPS, CDMA, RAM, CPU, as well as the addition of a LCD screen.

It's rather interesting that Onda didn't develop a 6" ereader first. I think they realized that the 6" market is crowded, and competition would be intense with little reward.

I found a promotional video for the MyTile; it's not good for much other than as proof of the MyTile's existence.

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."
