Digilife 6" E-Book

Digilife Global is a Chinese manufacturer of digital cameras and security cameras and they are also an excellent example of why it's a good idea to walk all the aisles of North Hall and the Hilton at CES. They brought an ebook reader as a last minute addition; it wasn't listed in the exhibitor registry.

They wouldn't let me try the unit they had on hand, but I did get a copy of the handout and I asked a few questions. The 6" model will be released in March with a projected retail of $250. Digilife is looking for distribution partners.

According to the handout, the specs are as follows:
  • Android OS
  • 6" e-Ink screen
  • touch screen
  • up to 16GB internal storage (made to order)
  • SD or microSD
  • on-screen keyboard
  • Wifi
  • Bluetooth (optional)
  • 3.5G (optional)
  • Adobe DRM
  • MP3, WMA, OGG support
  • handwriting OCR
  • Doc, PPT, XLS support (sounds like they can install docs2go)

There was also a handout for a 9" e-reader with very similar specs. The handouts are attached.

No ePUB? M$ formats only? I guess it's not for the private market then.

Adobe DRM is not a file format

Which could be PDF as well. Some book stores do the same and leave the customer wonder.

Except that as far as I know the only ebook reader based DRM provided by Adobe is Adobe Reader Mobile, which does both PDF and Epub.
