Just in case you need another ebook reader option instead of the Kindle or Nook or iRiver Story or Sony Reader or the upcoming Skiff, here’s the Tianjin Jinke A6 and A9.

At this point it’s not the the hardware is all that bad on all the random ebook readers leaving Asia. It’s just that they simply lack a digital delivery system or are too similar to products already on the market from household brands.

These two are no different. Both use SiPix panels with have multitouch-compatible capacitive touchscreens. They also both use a 400MHz Samsung ARM9 CPU and have 2GB of memory, along with 802.11b/g, an SD card slot, and optional EV-DO, WCDMA, TD-SCDMA 3G wireless. Both models also have an optional QWERTY keyboard. The A6 uses a 600×800 6-inch display while the A9 has a 768×1024 panel.

No word on pricing or availability yet — not that it really matters.
