Paradigm Shift's new ebook readers
You may have seen the blog postings last week about these devices Almost all the posts are copycats of either this story on Twice.com or this one on Engadget. I was waiting to get the press release (attached below). I know I'm posting this story several days behind everyone else, so there isn't much I can add. But I think I can add a detail or two about the US distributor, Delstar.
Delstar is an importer and wholesaler of consumer electronics. They take an OEM product and rebrand it with their name and model number.
I was already familiar with Delstar because it is currently distributing a Windows CE based netbook. I had found the netbook through K-Mart and wasn't terribly impressed. But, while I was researching for this post, I learned from Delstar's website that it has released a firmware update for the netbook. The update adds better support for Youtube. True, it's a minor improvement, but the fact that Delstar released it at all should be counted as a point in its favor.
I have an appointment to see the devices during CES, and will post more information once I have done so.

Haha, nice company name. Poor attempt from them to make these sound like primary e-book readers. Sorry if this offends.
These DO however sound like convincing internet tablets.
Kmarts over here are more dead then the Six-Flags-Mall.
