New LCD e-reader pops up in Germany
Mike Cane tipped me to this ereader when he somehow managed to find it on Amazon.de. It’s from a consumer electronics company I’ve never heard of before, and so far as I can tell this is their first ereader.
The SVP EB701 is based on a 7″ LCD screen. I’m not sure of the resolution, but I’d be surprised if it were more that 800×480. It ships with a microSD card slot, 2GB Flash, and pretty broad ebook support (TXT, HTML, DOC, WORD, PDF, FB2 , PDB, EPUB). It also plays a number of video formats, including; MPEG4, AVI, RMVB. There’s no mention of touchscreen or Wifi, so I wouldn’t assume it has them.
I also found it listed on Amazon.com for $140, curiously enough. I’m not sure I’d recommend it; the Kindle is the same price.

Naw, not Amazon.de. It was a YouTube vid I pointed you to.

And the only thing in the video was a suggestion to click the link to Amazon.de.

And you clicked. Suckah. Oh. Wait. Hahahaha.

Overstock has been selling these for some time now. Different ranges in price depending on the internal memory.
