Medion P6101 e-reader launched in Germany (video)

Medionsat down yesterday with Johannes of so they could share their newest ereader.  The P6101 is a Netronix design based on a 6" E-ink screen (Vizplex, not Pearl) with Wifi and touchscreen. It comes with 2GB Flash and a microSD card slot. Ebook support includes ADE and the usual broad selection of formats.

Johannes reported that the firmware isn't complete yet, but the ereader should be available in December for 200€. A 3G equipped version is planned for 2011.

I've seen the hardware before (kinda).  Do you recall the post about a month ago about the Pocketbook 602 clearing the FCC? This particular Medion model was named in the paperwork. Of course, Pocketbook has since changed the 602 so it's now a different piece of hardware.

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."
