Shanda reveal Bambook, will be on sale 9 August

The long awaited ereader from Shanda Literature was revealed last week at the China Digital Entertainment Expo & Conference.

I don’t have the  specs for the Bambook, but I do know that it has Wifi and that Shanda have launched an ebookstore to support it.

UPDATE: One of my sources have come through for me. I now know that the Bambook is using a 800MHz Marvel CPU, costs, 998 Yuan (during the beta at least). It also won’t be going on sale on the 9th. Instead, it will be in a closed beta.

I also found some unboxing photos.
