A new e-reader from India’s EC Media has just been paraded in front of the press pending its imminent release.
Dubbed the Wink, more than 200,000 book titles are already in stock thanks to partnerships with mega-publishers Harper Collins, Penguin, Roli, Oxford University and Permanent Black.
Expect the list to grow in the run up to its official launch, with both newspapers and magazines hopping aboard in record time. EC media has also secured distribution and retail deals with Redington and Croma, respectively.
As for specs, Wink has a 6 inch e-paper display, WiFi, GPRS wireless Connectivity, 10,000 page turns worth of battery, headphone jack, USB 2.0 socket and judging by the available pic, a Kindle-esque keyboard.
Alas, even if this will hit stores soon there’s no official price yet. But don’t expect EC Media to go the $35 tablet route and sell this ridiculously low.
