NUUT intros NP-601 e-book reader with Vizplex display

Those curious to see just how much E Ink Corp.'s new and improved Vizplex display enhances the e-reading experience now have an actual eBook reader they can get their hands on, although they'll have to find a way to get one out of South Korea.

Apart from that new 6-inch, 600 x 800 display (which promises twice the refresh speed and 20% better brightness than previous models), NUUT's NP-601 e-book reader is a fairly standard affair, with 512MB of internal memory, an SD card slot for expansion, and a headphone jack to take advantage of some of its (unspecified) non-reading functions. Look for this one to set you back about $300.
