Pegasus ebook readers

China Hualu Group is a Chinese manufacturer of portable TVs, DVD players, and other consumer electronics under the brand name of Pegasus. All of which were in their booth at CES, as well as their ebook readers.

They brought 1 working unit as well as several mock ups of 6" and 9.7" units that are currently under development. There is a variety of models with and without touchscreen and Wifi. I gathered from my conversation that they're still developing the firmware. We discussed the benefits of Foxit vs Adobe in terms of PDF abilities; I tried to talk them into adding FBReader as well.

If you look in the last photo you'll see the working model. They're planning to have it ready by the end of Q1 2010, and I was told that the expected price was $199.

There is a website for a US based subsidiary, but the site isn't up yet.

and also in some rows the quotation mark is missing on the left (if it should exist at all).

Thumbs up

BTW, I like the button design on those devices in the first photo. It incorporates the idea that human beings can normally differentiate between more than "few" objects/concepts put together.
