STAR eBook from Taiwan

Original Post from June 28th 2007

eREAD Technologies is a Taiwanese company that has recently introduced the STAR eBook in Taiwan. Here is their English Website.

You can find a posting describing it in more detail here, on Linux Devices web or read more in their Product description on their web.

Seems to be along the lines of the Sony device, probably using same eInk 6" display from PVI.
It maybe slightly slimmer and is white with a less cluttered design with less buttons and keys.
Display and battery performance seem similar to Sony.

As pretty much everyone else, they have "done their own thing" eBook format-wise.

It seems from their web that eRead is collaborating with a French Newspaper, see here.
