Kalahari.net to sell the Elonex 500EB

Now _this_ was an interesting choice. I have just learned that Kalahari.net, a South African web retailer, have added the Elonex 500EB as a platform for their ebookstore. The 500EB was just announced at IFA 2010. It has a 5" LCD screen, 2GB Flash, and a SD card slot, but no Wifi or touchscreen. It supports Adobe DE DRM, and it also reads AVI, MP3, and WAV.

In other news, Kalahari are also selling the Cybook Gen3, Cybook Opus, and the iriver Story (all of which can be used with the Kalahari ebookstore). They have also expanded their ebookstore to include digital magazines. They've signed up to be a retailer for Zinio. You can buy the magazines from Kalahari, but you'll need the Zinio to read them.

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."
