Dittobook increases production

This piece of news came across my desk a few days ago. I wasn't going to report on it (it's not that important), but E-Reader.info has posted a story and I know I could write a better one.

Macotron, Dittobook's corporate parent, have moved their assembly line to a larger facility. Here's their announcement. Other than the fact that their facility is in Silicon Valley (I had assumed  China), this isn't much in the way of news.

A little Background

Macotron is a manufacturing services company. One of the services they provide is under the brand name Dittobook. If you want to get X number 0f ereader with your company's logo, they can do it. If you want an ereader with a specific program running on it, they can do that too.

Dittobook also provides stock ereader hardware (this is what sets them aprt form their competitors). They currently list 3 models: D6 (Kindle clone), D6+ (rebranded Onyx Boox), and D9 (a 9.7" ). The latest info I have is that the D9 isn't in production yet. Actually, I've been told that everyone is having production problems with that screen size.

I visited the Dittobook booth at CES, andwrote about that visit over on MobileRead Forums. Here are some of the pictures I took. The last is a scanned copy of their brochure.

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."
