The Hanlin V5

I don't know if this is real or an elaborate hoax, but it's interesting enough that I decided to share it anyway.

As you may know, ebook distributor Endless Ideas has been dropping hints about a new ebook reader on Twitter. They've suggested it will have a 5" screen, and hinted that they will be breaking the the $200 barrier.

Well, one of our forum members found this page. It's in Chinese, so if you need a translation, look at the English language page here. It might nor be the same device, and it might even be a hoax. But it's worth having a look.


The V5 is basically the mini version of the V3. Here are the specs:
