India’s Wink XTS e-reader is the Hanlin V60

There was a story going around this past week about EC Media and their new Wink 5" ereader model. I passed on the story; I'd already reported about the 5" ereader back in July and there was no new detail. No one had pictures, so it wasn't worth a post.

One upside of all the stories on the 5" Wink is that a number of sites were using pictures of the 6" Wink, and I recognized it as the Hanlin V60. (When I last posted on the Wink, I hadn't seen the V60 yet.)

I got the following picture from MobRead, a Chinese ereader blog. It's quite obvious that the devices are the same, and this makes me feel a lot more confident about the Wink. Hanlin have several years of ereader development experience and quite a few previous models. My estimate of the qaulity and reliability of the Wink went up (a lot).

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."
