BenQ to release nReader K60 in August

Digitimes is reporting that BenQ plans to launch their ereader in August and eBook Taiwan, their ebookstore, in September. They expect to sell around 300k ereaders in 2010.

There's something a little odd about this. BenQ announced the device in November of last year and the ebookstore back in January. Weren't those early announcements a little premature?

BTW, BenQ also has an ereader that has cleared FCC here in the US. I haven't found it for sale anywhere, though.

I also found this video shot by Charbax of armdevices.net.

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."

  1. Hello Nate,

    the Qisda OEM is sold in Italy as eVreader WT by Devo, and in Spain as L337 by NVSBL. These are the good news, to me. The bad news are the prices: 260-299 euros in Spain and 349 euros in Italy. They are completely nuts! (my opinion, of course). 😉

    bye

  2. Can anyone kindly tell me if the nReader has a replaceable battery that one can flip the back cover to change it himself or herself?
