First look at the New Mirasol E-reader!

Do you recall the press release for the Pocketbook Mirasol ereader that I leaked back in November? That device was at the top of my thoughts for CES, but unfortunately, I haven't found any new info on it. But I was sent a link to this video. Apparently they posted it to Youtube in anticipation of the announcement. (It's after the break.) I'm guessing that this is the 5.7" screen we've seen before. The only details I can discern is that it runs Android and has a camera, accelerometer, and a capacitive touchscreen (look for the pinch-zoom). Also, the shape of the case reminds me of the Pocketbook IQ. The big margin around the screen and the 4 buttons at the bottom would also suggest that they've retrofitted an existing design. I'll find out more tomorrow.

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."

  1. Looks exciting. But, this is obviously PR from Qualcomm, not an upcoming reader from Pocketbook. I’ll be more excited when we hear from Pocketbook, hopefully this week.

  2. The e-reader has to come form someone, and we already know that Pocketbook is a partner.

  3. CGIed device, PShopped screen. Let’s see the real thing or STFU already, Mirasol.
