Wistron is cooperating with a Hong Kong-based publisher to tap China's e-book market, and plans to launch a 6-inch e-book reader in June 2010, according to industry sources.
The e-book reader will use grey-scale EPD from SiPix - a subsidiary of AU Optronics (AUO) - and run on Android, the sources noted, adding that the product will be sold at 2,980 yuan (US$436.27).
Wistron will provide both hardware and software solutions, while the publisher will provide content, the sources said.
Why is everyone watching Wistron? It's because they bought Polymer Vision out of bankruptcy, and thus own the flexible screen tech that the Polymer Vision Readius was based on. We're all hoping that they will release an ereader based on it.
