Christmas came late this year, but I have a present for you. I just got an email notification that a new ereader cleared the FCC. This ereader was built by Netronix, but carries the brand MobiScribe, and according to the manual, it is called the Origin.
The Origin features a 6.8″ screen with a frontlight that offers color-changing, contrast, and brightness settings. (There’s also a 4th setting which I have not figured out). In addition to the capacitive touchscreen, this ereader also ha a Wacomstylus.
According to the test results, the Origin has Wifi but not Bluetooth. The internal photos show that it is a chip for the stylus, but it’s hard to make out the CPU or RAM.
Virtually all the interesting details were left visible to the public, so I would love it if you would take a look and tell me if you spotted something I missed.
