Another Day Another eReader
We start to wonder whether we have seen some of the new ebook readers before? Note only do they have the same ‘lookie likie’ screen technology but they even look the same. The Astak Mentor is a 6" reader, with 512Mb of internal memory and an SD Card reader. It weights in at 175 grams and supports TXT, ePUB, PDF and more text formats and runs Linux 2.6. It also includes a SuDoKu game.
Will we want one for Christmas? We doubt it at $280 and with black and white greyscale. When will we get a decent tablet and put these devices down?
