I just came across information on Smart Devices' latest product. The latest addition to their line of 7" tablets is going to be an ereader. The new device will have a 7" LCD touch screen with a resolution of 800x600. I think there's something funky about that screen dimension; I don't think anyone makes a screen that shape. I don't know about the price or when it will be available,but when I get more info I will post it.
I'm not really looking forward to the R7. The first gen tablet is quite good as an ereader, and the R7 will have to be pretty spectacular to justify the extra cost.
