Readius news blurb - for those still interested
Ive been interested in this device since I first heard about it.
Here is a blurb about the company that bought it after bankrupcy, basically that there are plans for something to be released this year.
Will see .. fyi .. they dropped the phone aspect it seems .. yea!

Device: nook color, nook touch
I would have been interested in getting one when they announced it, but now I think they should consider updating the design to have a 6" diagonal screen with the 600x800 resolution found in Kindle, Nook, Sony, etc. readers. I'd still like a reader that I could put into a pocket or attach to a belt, but I think the small screen size will limit its appeal in the marketplace.

About 5 months ago I managed an introduction to Karl McGodrick and we had a good phone conversation about the state of Readius after the purchase by Wistron. We continue to carry on an email conversation.
Of course he has to be guarded about what he says and I have to be a bit guarded about what I repeat. But the basic gist is is that the Readius that you think of and as mentioned in the article is basically a 2 year old device. While the company was dealing with its financial woes the engineers were continually working on the device. They have made many improvements since then as has the electronics world in general.
So with the backing of Wistron and new supply chains developed what we will see later this year will be sort of Readius 2.0
