GMini to release 3 new epaper e-readers in Russia

click to embiggen

I've just come across another company in Russia with plans to release their own ereader.  I'd say at this point Russia is possible the second most active ereader market (after the US). Gmini announced 3 new ereaders this week. One will have a Sipix screen, and the other 2 will have E-ink screens. First up is the Gmini MagicBook M6P. This ereader has a 6" Pearl E-ink screen, microSD card slot, FM radio, and MP3 player. Most details are still vague, but it is supposed to support "all popular formats, including FB2, EPUB, PDF." It should be on the market in the next few weeks.

I know a little more about the Gmini MagicBook M61. This ereader has a 6" Vizplex E-ink screen, 4GB Flash storage, and a SD card slot. There's no mention fo when this ereader will hot the market or for how much.  But I can report that the format support is extensive:

  • ePUB, FB2, TXT, PDF, HTML, RTF, DOC, MOBI, ZIP
  • MP3, WMA, OGG, WAV
  • JPG, GIF, PNG, BMP

And finally we have Gmini's Sipix ereader, the MagicBook S65T. As I look at the picture, I have to say that this looks like it was designed by the same people who did the OEM Sipix ereaders for BenQ which have shown up in various places. This is probably a good design.

According to my source, it has 4GB Flash, a SD card slot, and the same format support as above. I also expect it to have a capacitive touchscreen and Wifi, but that isn't mentioned anywhere.

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."
