Axpro A60 – 6″ e-reader w\ Wifi, touchscreen (video)

Johannes just posted about this ereader he found at the Frankfurt Book Fair last week.The Axpro A60 is based on a 6" Eink screen and it has Wifi, 2GB Flash, a speaker, microphone, and microSDHC card slot. It has just the 3 buttons on the front (2 page turn and menu). The most interesting detail about this ereader is that it appears to be using the new IR touchscreen sensor from Neonode. Axpro didn't actually give the company's name, but I only know of 1 IR touchscreen.It's also using the older Vizplex screen, but Johannes thinks it doesn't matter. He sounded pleased with the screen quality.

It's in production now, and the current wholesale price is $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."
