The Haier Topsir is a 2,000 Yuan eReader

Haier is best known in the US for its home appliances and air conditioners, but that is only the beginnings of what this Chinese manufacturer produces.

Haier just announced the Topsir, a 9.7" ereader that has both a capacitive touchscreen and an electromagnetic stylus.

Announced last week at AWE2017, the Topsir is an education-focused device with a left-handed design.

Details are still scarce, but we do know that the full name translates as the "Topsir Handwriting Education electronic paper book". Topsir lives up to its name, and ships with 300 thousand exercises as well as a testing app and an education module which ties into the Dangdang Bookstore.

It has palm-cancellation tech built in, enabling students to draw without marking the screen, but it is not clear whether the Topsir also has a frontlight, or what its screen resolution is.

According to the announcement, the Topsir is going to retail for  2,000 yuan, or about $290 USD.

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. Interesting.. And the price is quite nice! I always like to see more 9.7” e-readers- this market is much bigger than many people think.

    Jing Page X seems like a nice e-reader too.

    Will wait for some review video:)

  2. I agree. The more e-ink big-screen adoption will lower prices.
