Kobo, Cool-ER to release Wifi equipped e-reader!

Kobo, Cool-ER to release Wifi equipped e-reader! e-Reading Hardware Wireless Goodness has found the FCC filings for a new Netronix ereader. It looks like their standard 6", only this one has Wifi. So how do I know who's going to carry it? I don't really know for sure, but several brands are listed, including:

  • E60822,
  • GB60822
  • Inves-Wibook 600, Inves-Wibook 601
  • booq wifi
  • IPBI01/IBPI02
  • EB600D
  • MM300/MM301
  • COOL-ER
  • Kobo
  • iLiber

This list includes most of the Netronix distributors, and there are only 2 actually available in the US. There is a very good chance that Netronix listed them all just in case someone ever decided to import them. Also, there are 3 notable absences form the list: Bookeen, Pocketbook and Astak. I'm not sure what that means, but it means something.

P.S. I have confirmation from Cool-ER. They are going to be selling it.
