KDDI to sell Bliblio Leaf e-reader in Japan

This new ereader just showed up on Japanese telecom KDDI's website (I'm still looking for the press release.)

Right now all I think I know is that it has a 6" E-ink screen, 2GB Flash, 3G, and Wifi as well as support for XMDF, Epub, and PDF. It's going to be available in December (only in Japan, of course).

Update: Crunchgear had more info on the  Biblio Leaf:

Toshiba says buyers can expect a built-in calendar, a calculator and a notebook function. The Leaf’s internal memory (2GB) can be expanded via microSD cards (the device also features a microUSB port).

What’s pretty interesting is the mini solar panel that’s built into the bottom right of the device. Toshiba doesn’t specify how powerful the panel will actually be but says that with the internal battery fully charged, users will be able to turn about 7,500 pages consecutively.

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."
