The Samsung eReader allows users to easily access content through WiFi, write notes directly on the page, highlight content and share notes with friends and peers. Highlights: Electromagnetic resonance (EMR) stylus pen, a 6” E-ink display (600×800) with 8-Gray scale, e-pub/PDF/a/TXT/bmp/jpg support, built-in MP3 player, Wi-Fi (802.11 b/g) & Bluetooth 2.0 support, 2GB of internal memory, and a Micro SD card slot.
“We are very excited to be entering the explosive eReader market with a device that brings the best of a traditional reading experience into the digital age,” said Reid Sullivan, Senior Vice President at Samsung Electronics America. “Samsung prides itself on identifying and fulfilling unmet consumer needs through innovation, and the eReader is emblematic of that approach. We are partnering with the best in the business to offer access to an extensive array of content, and have developed innovative features and technologies designed to make reading that content as personal and intimate an experience as reading a hard copy book has always been.”
