New LCD e-reader shows up in Russia

New LCD e-reader shows up in Russia e-Reading Hardware have the details on the Asistant Media AE-501, an ereader based on a 5" LCD screen with 2GB Flash, a microSD card slot, and broad ebook format support (TXT, DOC, PDB, PDF, EPUB, FB2, HTML, RTF, LRC, CHM and Djvu). The spec page also lists quite a few video formats supported (AVI, RMVB, RM, 3GP, FLV, MP4, VOB, MPG) as well as MP3. There's no touchscreen or Wifi, and I'm not sure if it supports a DRMed ebook format.

It's selling now for 4550 rubles (~$148 USD), and the first 100 buyers will get a free 4GB microSD card.

About Nate Hoffelder (9906 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."
