Other large screen readers

Does anyone know when the other, Kindle DX-like, e-readers will come out? I have heard that there is a large screen Netronix and a large screen Jinke reader due out this year? Is this official? If yes, does anyone know when?

Now that PVI have started large-scale production of 9.7" screens, I'd expect to see 9.7" devices from all the major manufacturers this year.

Thanks, guys. I read lots of technical books and documents in PDF. My usage requires the larger screen size. I have tried most of the 6" devices and they just won't do. It's good to know there will be many choices this year.

I'm thinking about going for a Kindle DX, but without an sd-card slot I'm not so sure. This feels like a must have with a lot of heavy PDF:s. Can't believe they decided to drop it when Kindle 1 had one. For my part I might as well wait and see what comes out before summer.

See E-book Reader Matrix: Larger Devices for some of the devices we know about. One that isn't there is the Asus DR-950, which is apparently launching in March or early April. It has a 9" SiPix e-paper screen, like the Hanlin A9.

Another one I don't see in the matrix is Samsungs e101 with release early 2010.
