New eReader pops up in the Philippines

Andrys Basten of KindleWorld  uncovered this ereader earlier today. This is an off brand ereader that's being sold in the Philippines for 3990 pesos (about $90). The company selling it, CDR King, is a chain of discount electronics stores, not a tech company, so I'd guess the design is from somewhere in China.

It has a 7" LCD screen, microSD card slot, 2GB Flash, an FM Radio, but no Wifi or touchscreen. The product page show a pretty impressive set of ebook, video, and audio support (including 720p video).

Sorry about the image quality; I can't find anything better.

About Nate Hoffelder (11480 Articles)
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. Found this on display in a CDR-King store in SM Bacolod, I’m hoping they will develop an upgraded version with wifi capability. As an e-book enthusiast, the price is just right.
