Samsung Unveils the E6 and E101 eBook Readers with WiFi and Bluetooth
      #35601 - 01/06/10 05:27 PM

Samsung today unveiled its first e-book devices, with six-inch and ten-inch screen size offerings, at the 2010 CES. The Samsung E6 and E101 ebook readers have long battery life and built-in WiFi and Bluetooth. More info:

Handwriting Capabilities

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.
