Foxit signs deal with South Korean E-reader maker

From the press release:

Foxit Corporation, a leader in PDF software solutions and NEXT PAPYRUS Inc., an eReader Manufacturer and leading ePaper solution company in South Korea today announced that they have entered into a new partnership. NEXT PAPYRUS will integrate Foxit’s core PDF and epub rendering technology on their eReader products. The two companies will also come together to form a worldwide sales channel for the Pageone ereader device.


I'm sure everyone know who Foxit is. (They make PDF software and the eSlick.) But Next Papyrus is something of a mystery. So far as I can tell, they're a fairly new tech startup in the ereader industry. I  think they have one product on the market in Asia. Unfortunately, I don't have all that much information on them. They've been ignoring my emails since the beginning of March.

The one product that I do know of, the Pageone (mentioned above), does have a website. The site is in Korean, though, and the text is in images (which defeats Google translate). I have some technical information, but no concrete details.

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."
