Wink e-reader launched in India

I've been waiting for for more detail on this ereader for some time now, and it just popped up yesterday.

When I first heard about the Wink, I thought it would be just an ereader. It turns out that it will be a family of (ereaders with screen raging from 5" to 9") by EC Media, a Bangalore based tech company.

Details are still sparse, but I do know that DC Books, EC Mdia's publishing partner, have already signed HarperCollins and Penguin to supply ebooks for the Wink. Also, the ebooks will be encumbered by Adobe DRM.

There were 5 models listed, and they're supposed to be available in mid July:

  • 6-inch screen display with WiFi priced at Rs. 11,499 ($246)
  • 6-inch screen display with WiFi, GPRS, Text to Speech (TTS) for Rs. 13,499 ($289)
  • 6-inch screen display with WiFi, 3G, TTS to be made available at Rs. 15,499 ($331)
  • 9-inch screen display with WiFi, 3G, TTS and Touch Screen for Rs.17,499 ($375)
  • 5-inch screen display Reader for Rs.6,999 ($150)

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."
