I just spent 5 minutes with the Go. Details will be posted tonight. It's a surprisingly good comic book reader.

Can someone recommend a capable comic book reader? I want to use something else to compare.

I spent about 10 minutes with the N518. I wasn't planning to see it so soon; don't expect details before tomorrow night.

Samsung has 4 ebook readers on display

I just saw:
  • 5" w\ Wacom screen, no wifi, no slider
  • 6" slider w\ Wacom, Wifi
  • 6" w\ Wacom, no slider, Wifi, 3G symbol on back, removable battery
  • 9.7" w\ Wacom, Wifi, panel on back, and maybe 3g (I knew more than the reps)

I need to go retake the pictures. Sorry.

All 3 smaller models have the same model name in the settings menu: SNE-60k.

For me closest equivalent would be an iPhone using comic reader mobi?

The UI is frankly amazing and demo is free from app store

Also very easy to load comics in via drag and drop with a free desktop app(says windows only on there that is out of date mac and linux are available)

http://iphonecomicbookreader.com/ - includes video

Sungale & Wiltronic

I decided to combine thiese threads and make this thread a running commentary.

Sungale has an eink ebook reader that will come out in April. Even better, they knew about my Cyberus review and were okay with it.

Wiltornic is going to import several eink readers from China. I recognized one as the Oaxis by Gajah Int.

I have good picutres of both, so I will upload them late tonight.

Anymore details on the Go? I am assuming it's a color device because you mentioned it could be good for reading comics.

Curious to see what kind of screen technology it has and if it does other things as well (video or internet for example)

It's the device they released back in September (I think). The comic book reader was released at the beginning of December. All the PSP Go is is their latest generation of the Play Station Portable (it has no UMB drive).

The PSP Go has been a bit of a disappointment on the gaming side-maybe they are repurposing it as more a media reader?

I stopped by the xact (Copia) booth and the Ditto book booth. Wow on both.

I was also told that Blio wasn't on the floor in the Microsoft booth. The way it was phrased suggests it might be behind closed doors.

Nate, thanks or posting the BeBook Neo information.

Have you been to the PocketBook booth yet? I'm keen to find out some details on the PocketBook 302. Thanks.
