New LCD e-reader shows up in Russia

The-eBook.org 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.
