Hanvon N618 clears the FCC

This is an oldie but a goodie. Mike Cane tipped me to a FCC filing that I missed at the time.

One of Hanvon's new 6" ereaders cleared the FCC back in January. The N618 is based on E-ink Vizplex screen, not Pearl (but that might have changed). It has 4GB Flash storage, microSD card slot, a Wacom touchscreen sensor, and Wifi.

The N618 has been floating around for a while now. I saw it last year at DEA 2010, and it first appeared at CeBit a few months earlier. Hanvon had planned to get it on the US market last fall, but the ereader price war in June might have cooled their ardor.

P.S. I should probably clarify that the touchscreen isn't actually made by Wacom. Hanvon make their own digitizer, but the technology functions quite similar to Wacom's.

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."
