Libre Air!

I just found a photo from Aluratek on facebook of the "Libre Air". http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fb...3251296&ref=nf

Also Ubergizmo has some info on it. http://www.ubergizmo.com/2011/01/aluratek-libre-ebook/

According to ubergizmo, it has Wifi, and will hit the market at $129! But why did they get rid of the slider button?

I notice that the Jetbook and Jetbook Lite are not in the 2011 catalog.

I missed that announcement. It would appear from what they say, "jetBook + now uses an opticalsensor for navigation to turn pages and access menus just by swiping your finger", it sounds like it might have the same touchscreen as the Sony readers! Or at least a touchscreen...

Sounds more like a mini touchpad. My cellphone, a Samsung Epix, has one of those.

You're right. http://www.the-digital-reader.com/20...12/#more-14797

Well, it was nice thinking that it had a touchscreen...
