QUMO Colibri

QUMO Colibri e-Reading Hardware This is a new 5" E-ink device that's been announced for the Russian market, and it's Qumo's second ereader. There's no word yet on price, but it's supposed to be available in June 2010. Here are the specs:

  • 400 MHz CPU
  • 5" 16 level grayscale
  • weight: 150g
  • 256MB flash
  • microSDHC
  • FBReader
  • headphone jack
  • accelerometer
  • FM-Tuner
  • 1.1A Li-Po battery, 45 days standby

It looks like it could be interesting, but I'm not sure that having that many buttons is really a good idea. There is 0-9 on the left of the D-pad, and I'm not sure what's on the right (image is too small). I think 2 are the page turn buttons, but I'm not sure.

About Nate Hoffelder (10071 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. Is this the love child of a Pocketbook and a Kindle?
