This isn’t the first color eInk eReader I’ve heard of but at just over $300 it’s the first one at a somewhat reasonable price. Unfortunately it’s being released only in Russia for now.
Pocketbook has been very quiet the last calendar year, while the company restructured itself on a business level. Today in Russia, Pocketbook announced two new e-readers and a tablet. The company is betting on an color e-ink alternative to the Jetbook Color and a new six inch device.
The most exciting device they announced today was the PocketBook Color Lux. It features a full color e-Ink Triton 2 display, with a resolution of 800 × 600 pixels. It has a seven inch screen, which is the only e-reader in the world with this type of display. Commonly, most ebook readers have a six inch screen. The extra screen real estate should make reading PDF files a bit easier.
PocketBook Color Lux can connect up to the internet via Wi-Fi, has 4 GB internal memory, and can be enhanced further with the Micro SD card up to 32GB. It has a Freescale 800 MHZ processor and 256 MB of RAM.
