E-readers don’t always have to be stark slate’s of modern art and the Owen E1 E-Book is anything but. You just know by looking at it that it’s comfy to use and should fit into more pockets thanks to its rounded edges and smallish 5-inch screen. But it doesn’t matter, you probably won’t be able to buy it anytime soon.
So far this boy is set for a Chinese-release only and the pricing hasn’t been announced yet. But it shouldn’t be that expensive as it isn’t loaded up with every available e-reader option like the $349 Dulin’s Books Boox 60. The reader only shows 20 lines per page and 30 characters per line and can playback MP3, WMA, and OGG files. It’s not like you really don’t need a color screen and Wi-Fi anyway, right?
