It looks good but I would have to see the specs and the file types it works with. Someone on the site said the 9" model witll retail for $699. If that's true, my guess is that it is dead on arrival. For the record, I want to switch all my note taking at meetings to digital so this is especially appealing to me. But not at that price.

Samsung Unveils Its First E-Book for Reading, Writing and Sharing On-the-Go

Samsung's New E-Book Series Boasts First-of-its-Kind Functionality with a Precision Stylus Pen
2010 International CES

LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Samsung Electronics America, Inc., a subsidiary of Samsung Electronics Corporation, today unveiled its first e-book devices, with six-inch and ten-inch screen size offerings, at the 2010 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. The E6 and E101 further solidify Samsung's position as a global leader in display technology by raising the bar on the quality of writing capabilities for e-books.

"We've used our expertise to create a high-quality e-book with today's on-the-go consumer in mind"

"We've used our expertise to create a high-quality e-book with today's on-the-go consumer in mind," said Young Bae, director of display marketing, Samsung Information Technology Division. "Samsung is addressing a common frustration that users experience with many of today's digital readers with a stylus that allows them to annotate their favorite works or take notes. Coupled with wireless functionality that enables sharing of content, this is a truly multi-faceted device."

Handwriting Capabilities

Unlike other e-book devices, Samsung's E6 and E101 enables handwriting directly onto the display, allowing users to annotate their reading selections, calendars and to-do lists with a built-in electromagnetic resonance (EMR) stylus pen. This dedicated pen prevents mistypes caused by hands and other objects that may graze the screen's surface. A variety of pen and eraser thicknesses makes the Samsung e-books perfect for drawing and writing.

Low Power Consumption

The Samsung e-book displays reflect light naturally and deliver an appearance similar to that of printed paper, allowing people to read more naturally than they would with other backlit electronic paper devices. The E101 boasts a ten-inch screen, while the E6, is the more portable sibling at six inches. Because Samsung's e-book is not backlit, the power consumption is lower than that of other portable display devices. Only four hours of charging prepares the battery for up to two weeks of use, depending on the extent of daily use.

Bluetooth and Wi-Fi Wireless

Samsung's e-books are equipped for wireless connectivity as well. Wi-Fi 802.11b/g allows users to download content such as books and newspapers from a server wirelessly, as well as to share certain content with other devices. Bluetooth 2.0 is also a built in feature.

The Samsung E6 and E101 will be priced at $399 and $699, respectively. They will be available in early 2010.

The e-book line and more new display products from Samsung will be on display at the LVCC Central Hall, booth 11026 during the International Consumer Electronics Show at the Las Vegas Convention Center, January 7 – 10, 2010.
$399 for the E6 should help my sales of the Boox 60 at $349 I'll have to see it in person but i think i like this slider design

I'm not sure it does anything the Sony Daily doesn't do for $300 less.

Pretty interesting, the Propel (cell phone) style design along with the sliding controllers is pretty chic for the e-reader category.

Bluetooth ? The only use I can think of is pairing with a phone and using the mobile as a modem

With all these new e-readers coming on the market this year, makes my purchase choice that much harder. Looks like I might need to wait until the last half of 2010.

I wonder what format ebooks this device supports?

Another product not ready for the ebook market, they can't even show TEXT! Just drawings.

Note the absence of other information. They don't know what they can deliver.
