Samsung is now getting into the e-book game. It has developed its very own e-book reader, which will first be available in Korea for around $270. It’ll be Korea-only for a little while yet.
The reader, the SNE-50K e-book, has a five-inch touchscreen (the Kindle has a 6.5-inch screen) along with 250MB of storage.
Books will initially be supplied by Kyobo Bookstore, which is, as I understand it, on of South Korea’s biggest book sellers. So just because you’ve never heard of it doesn’t mean it’s not a big deal.
As far as relating it elsewhere, Samsung is in negotiations with book publishers to see if they’d be willing to release e-books for their reader.
Nothing wrong with choice, right?
