Shanda reveal Bambook, will be on sale 9 August

The long awaited ereader from Shanda Literature was revealed last week at the China Digital Entertainment Expo & Conference.

I don't have the  specs for the Bambook, but I do know that it has Wifi and that Shanda have launched an ebookstore to support it.

UPDATE: One of my sources have come through for me. I now know that the Bambook is using a 800MHz Marvel CPU, costs, 998 Yuan (during the beta at least). It also won't be going on sale on the 9th. Instead, it will be in a closed beta.

I also found some unboxing photos.

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."
