Spanish e-reader maker BQ Reader to use Neonode touchscreens

Neonode announced this morning that they've signed up yet another ebook reader company. Mundo Reader S.L., the parent company of bq reader, have decided to use Neonode's IR touchscreen tech in their next ebook reader.

Mundo also announced that they have an agreement with Telefonica, the Spanish telecom, to provide ereaders in all of Telefonica's markets, including Spain, Europe, Latin and America.

But the really interesting detail here is that this announcement means Mundo Reader's next ereader will be a custom design, and that is new. Everything they are selling right now was designed by someone else and Mundo licensed the work. At least, I recognize most of the tablets and ereaders on the bq reader website.

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."
