More E Ink from China: STAReBOOK STK-101 e-reader

I'll get right to the point: This one looks very sweet. Michel from Staretek sent us details on the Chinese STAReBOOK e-book reader, which boasts a 6-inch display using E Ink technology - apparently the same display manufactured by PVI and used in the Sony Reader and the Jinke HanLin eBook. The reader is supposed to become available this November in three different editions, two for the Chinese market and one for the English, at a price of around USD $440.

Specifications:
  • 6-inch SVGA 800x600 4 grey scales E Ink display
  • 250g (160g without case and li-ion battery)
  • 188mm by 118mm by 85mm (last one looks like a typo and should probably say 8.5mm)
  • ARM-based 250MHz SAMSUNG processor (S3C2410A core)
  • 64MB SDRAM system memory
  • SD slot (MMS compatible)
  • USB 2.0
  • headphone jack
  • rear-mounted mono speaker
  • Linux 2.4.1, MP3 player built-in, uses own e-book format internally (STK)
