Any Chinese eReaders worth buying to replace a broken K2?
My beloved Kindle 2 recently died; one of my children stepped on the screen. Although the pricing on the K3 is great, I'm not in the US, and to buy it locally would add another $100+ in taxes and duties; it's not worth $250 for me.
However, I'm currently in Shenzhen, China, on a business trip, and will be here for another few weeks. I'm wondering if there are any locally made readers that someone can recommend as a suitable replacement; I'm looking to pay about 100-150 USD for something of comparable specs; eink (hopefully Pearl), MOBI or ePUB support (PDF not req'd), decent storage and battery life, USB. Wifi, 3G, or color are not required, and I don't care about storage if there's an external slot for MicroSD (I've got literally a dozen 2GB MicroSD cards laying around...)

Found this recently, A kindle-like ereader from Delyca, loaded with all sorts
Seems a pretty decent, multifunctional reader (at least on paper). Plus it looks like a kindle, which you may like.
But apparently, some resellers e.g. Prestigio, remove some functionality from the reader, perhaps to make less expensive.
Here is a review here.
